Fridays at the Franklin: Body Worlds 2 and the Brain

Visit the exhibit now at The Franklin Institute!
Experience the human body in all its elegance and complexity in the exhibition of entire bodies in dramatic poses.

BODY WORLDS 2 & The Brain presents a broad collection of authentic human specimens, and, for the first time in Philadelphia, a special presentation on the brain. Featuring some of the latest findings in neuroscience on brain development, function and disease, this exhibit will inspire a greater understanding of and respect for the mysterious world of the brain.

All specimens in BODY WORLDS exhibitions are preserved by the revolutionary process of Plastination, invented by anatomist Dr. Gunther von Hagens. BODY WORLDS is the only public anatomical exhibition associated with an established body-donation program.
