Myrtle Beach, SC (PRWEB) July 27, 2011
Bodies Revealed at Broadway at the Beach in Myrtle Beach, S.C., will be closing Sept. 5, 2011. That leaves only a few more weeks for visitors to see inside the human body at the exhibition by Premier Exhibitions, Inc. It is open everyday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
This is the first and only time that Bodies Revealed has been presented in South Carolina and it is not scheduled to appear anywhere else in the state in 2011.
Seen by millions worldwide, Bodies Revealed features real, whole and partial body specimens that have been meticulously dissected and preserved, giving visitors the opportunity to view the complexity of their own organs and systems like never before.
“For centuries, the medical community has learned about the inner workings of anatomy through the study of real human bodies, and now it’s possible for the public to gain an intimate knowledge as well,” said Dr. Roy Glover, chief medical director for Bodies Revealed. “The exhibition changes the way people of South Carolina see themselves. It will enlighten, empower, fascinate and inspire.”
Bodies Revealed—which is located on the northeastern side of Broadway at the Beach—shares the body in unprecedented detail that is normally reserved for medical professionals. Visitors of all ages can look deep inside the carefully-preserved specimens, learn about human anatomy and see the effects that disease and unhealthy lifestyles have on the body. Tickets are $14 for adults and $10 for children. Children under the age of three are free.
The exhibition takes visitors through a series of galleries providing an up-close look inside the skeletal, muscular, reproductive, respiratory, circulatory and other systems of the human body. Many of the full-body specimens are dissected in vivid athletic poses, allowing visitors to relate to everyday activities. In addition, a multitude of organs are displayed to illustrate the damage that can result from over-eating, lack of exercise and smoking, and provide comparisons more powerful than those illustrated in any textbook.
