Medieval barbers were considered the medical experts of their day, largely because of the widely held notion that the body's most vital organs were found in the hair. Celebrate modern anatomical understanding with today's Groupon: for $11, you get one admission to the exhibit Our Body: The Universe Within at Chicago's International Museum of Surgical Science in the Gold Coast (a $22 value). Our Body is a renowned traveling exhibition that showcases more than 200 actual, preserved human bodies and organ specimens in various poses. Providing a rare glimpse at human beings' inner workings, the exhibit has the potential to give visitors a better understanding of anatomy and physiology, helping them relate more easily to their upset stomach or moody spleen. The IMSS will display its collection of historical surgical equipment with the exhibit, allowing guests to see dissected human specimens posed alongside artifacts associated with the treatment, prevention, and diagnosis of specific diseases.

Our Body: The Universe Within was featured on WGN, and the exhibit was reviewed on Associated Content:

  • At first I thought I would get squeamish, but I did just fine. The exhibit has more of an educational feel. It wasn't gross or gory at all. – Candice W., Examiner
