“The Human Body” Exhibition came to Romania this March. The exhibition, which includes over 200 items – real human bodies that through organs and tissue dissection offer a unique, 3D and real-life perspective on the human body, will be on display at the National Museum of Natural History Grigore Antipa in Bucharest, between March 22 and June 30, 2013.
The event aims to change perceptions of the human body, giving Romanians, for the first time, the opportunity to see a human body through the eyes of a surgeon and to “experience” a visual journey inside the body, according to the organizers. The exhibition also tries to encourage people to respect and take care of their bodies, paying more attention on how they chose to live. For example, visitors will see the effects of smoking, obesity or other conditions resulting from neglect or abuse of the body.
The exhibits have already been presented in cities such as London, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Bratislava, Budapest, Dublin, Kiev, Lisbon, Madrid, Prague, Turin, Vienna and Oostende.
Tickets for ‘The Human Body” exhibition cost between RON 32 and RON 60 for individuals and from RON 85 to RON 135 for groups. For groups of over 10 children the price is RON 30 per person. Tickets can be purchased from Germanos, Orange and Vodafone stores, Carturesti and Humanitas bookshops, or online from eventim.ro network. If you plan to buy tickets from the museum, call beforehand to ask whether they are still on sale.
