Paging All Science and Medical Mavens: Get To Philadelphia Stat for Body Worlds and Beyond
Date:10/20/2009

PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Gunther von Hagens' Body Worlds 2 & The Brain made its debut at Philadelphia's Franklin Institute on October 17, and will be one of many points of interest for visitors eager to explore the area's vast array of scientific treasures. The second-largest medical research and education center in the U.S., the Philadelphia region is home to many medical, anatomical and scientific sites--from the nation's first hospital and the well-heeled home of the "Father of American Surgery" to museums devoted to medical marvels and the history of pharmacy. Those who'd like to spend a night or two exploring the region's scientific wonders can plan their visit and book their stay at gophila.com.

The Body Eccentric:

  • Go beneath the anatomical surface at Body Worlds 2 & The Brain, the sequel to the wildly popular Body Worlds exhibition, on view at The Franklin Institute from October 17 through February 21. Presenting a collection of real human specimens plasticized to reveal the body's inner workings, the exhibit places a special emphasis on the least understood organ and the latest findings in neuroscience. Also worth seeing are permanent exhibits of anatomical interest--namely, the Giant Heart, replete with giant walk-through heart, a room-size EKG machine and Bloodmobile Video Theater; and Sports Challenge, a 5,500-square-foot stadium with interactive and virtual reality athletic games that illustrate the role of science in sports. 222 N. 20(th) Street, (215) 448-1200, fi.edu
  • With its vast and unusual collection of human medical marvels and mysteries (a plaster cast of conjoined twins Chang and Eng, the preserved body of the "Soap Lady" and some 2,000 objects removed from people's throats), the Mutter Museum of The College of Physicians of Philadelphia is one of Philly's most enduringly wonderful gems.
