Myrtle Beach, SC (PRWEB) January 28, 2012
Premier Exhibitions, Inc. announced today that Bodies Revealed will return for the second summer in a row to Myrtle Beach’s Broadway at the Beach on May 28, 2012. More than one million people saw this exhibition in the United States last year, including a brief visit to Myrtle Beach, which drew huge audiences and prompted an extension through Jan. 8. This time, it is expected to run through Labor Day 2012. The Exhibition features meticulously dissected real, whole and partial body specimens that have been preserved to give visitors an opportunity to view the complexity of their own organs and systems.
“After such a very successful run last year, we’re thrilled to bring the Bodies Revealed exhibit back to Myrtle Beach’s Broadway at the Beach,” said Katherine Seymour, vice president of communications with Premier Exhibitions, Inc., the company that presents Bodies Revealed. “The response was overwhelmingly positive and this is the first time we’ve brought Bodies Revealed to the same location twice. We hope that people who didn’t have a chance to view the exhibit last time—and those who loved it and want to come back—will come to Myrtle Beach and check it out.”
The Exhibition will be located on the northeastern side of Broadway at the Beach and cost $14 for adults and $10 for children. Children under the age of three are free. It will be open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Bodies Revealed 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. Visitors of all ages can view the carefully-preserved specimens, learn about human anatomy, and see the effects that disease and unhealthy lifestyles have on the body.
In addition, many organs are displayed to illustrate the damage that can result from over-eating, lack of exercise and smoking. These comparisons are more powerful than those illustrated in any textbook.
“The Bodies Revealed exhibit was very well received last year and we’re glad more visitors will have a chance to see it again this summer,” said Patrick Walsh, senior vice president of asset management with the Burroughs & Chapin Company, which owns Broadway at the Beach. “This unique opportunity gives an inside look into the body that is typically reserved for medical professionals. Those who didn't get to visit Bodies Revealed last year will have the chance to experience the intriguing exhibit this year. It’s wonderful to have this offering two years in a row for Broadway at the Beach’s 13 million visitors.”
Bodies Revealed has been organized and created by a team of medical professionals who take up to a year to prepare each exhibit. The bodies in the Exhibition have been donated for scientific purposes and have been preserved through a revolutionary process called polymer preservation. In this process, human tissue is permanently preserved using liquid silicone rubber that is treated and hardened. The end result is a rubberized specimen, preserved to the cellular level, showcasing the complexity of the body's many bones, muscles, nerves, blood vessels and organs.
