You'll Never Look at People the Same Way Again

TORONTO, Oct. 5 /CNW/ - Gunther von Hagens' BODY WORLDS & The Story of the Heart is an all-new exhibition that will reveal through the lenses of anatomy, cardiology, psychology and culture how the heart nourishes, regulates and sustains life. The exhibition will give Science Centre visitors a profound insight into the human body with over 200 human specimens including whole-body plastinates, organs and translucent body slices.

Please join us for a special media preview of BODY WORLDS & The Story of the Heart, and the North American premiere of a striking new animal plastinate - a giraffe measuring 5.60 metres from head to feet, which took 6650 hours and two years to complete.
