Immerse yourself in a human body experience like no other!
If you’ve always wanted to explore the fascinating workings of the human body, why not dive right in? This journey takes you inside the human anatomy, through organs, muscles and systems, and lets you interact and play with the amazing functions of the body.
This feast of light, sound and pneumatics makes this exhibition a perfect way for adults and children to be educated, excited and enlightened about the human body. You’ll step into the mouth of a 6m tall human face into a journey through the fascinating human anatomy. See, hear and feel what it’s like to be an explorer inside five main systems of your body: the circulatory, digestive, immune, nervous and respiratory systems.
You’ll feel the soft texture of the stomach lining, the rush of air as you approach the lungs; hear the heart beating over sonic sub speakers and experience what it feels like to be swallowed as you squeeze your way through the throat!
Through it all, you’ll hear a commentary of important medical and educational information to guide you along your journey. It’s a larger-than-life thrill, a delightful way to learn, and a completely immersive experience as you feel, hear and sense the experience of being inside a human body! Back To Top
A labyrinth of veins
Get lost in a maze of veins, with eerie fluorescent lighting to represent the these vessels that circulate blood throughout the body.
Churn and mix with your stomach
Feel a sudden spray of mist hit you in a simulation of what gastric juice would feel like. Then, wobble across the floor of the churning stomach, and try to keep your balance as things start moving!
