Learn about the human body from the inside out at the fascinating Bodies: The Exhibition. Located in Las Vegas, this is the largest permanent human anatomy exhibition in the United States and features 13 whole-body specimens as well as more than 250 organs, all of which are arranged to illuminate how our systems function.
Take a self-guided tour through the show’s nine themed exhibits, each of which highlights a different system of the human body, such as the skeletal, muscular, respiratory, digestive, and circulatory systems. Specimens include well-preserved, healthy bodies as well as some damaged by illness or poor dietary choices. Docents and specialists are on hand to answer questions and explain certain displays in greater detail.
Admission to the exhibit is included with some Las Vegas sightseeing passes, including the Go Las Vegas Explorer Pass and the All-Inclusive Pass. For extra savings, book a combo ticket that includes both the Bodies exhibition and Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition.
