WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — A new exhibit is being installed at the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium in West Palm Beach.

"Real Bodies: The Exhibition" features preserved bodies that explore the different systems of the human body.

“We are thrilled to bring Real Bodies to Palm Beach County,” said Kate Arrizza, Science Center President and CEO. “We know our guests will love seeing the science beneath the skin and learning about human evolution through time. This is a rare opportunity to see the human body from the inside, which we hope will spark an interest in children to seek careers in science and medicine.”

The 20 bodies are preserved from decay by using a silicon process.

One of the exhibits will feature the impact the coronavirus has on the respiration, digestion, and circulation systems.

The 11 galleries open to the public on Monday, Sept. 28 and will be installed until April.
