Gunther von Hagens’ BODY WORLDS 1 is the first anatomical exhibition of plastinated human bodies which was made available to the wide public. Since 1995, it's attracted nearly 25 million visitors in over 40 cities in Asia, Europe, and North America. And it's coming to the Milwaukee Public Museum beginning January 18th for a limited engagement.
See the human body like never before. From individual organs to whole-body plastinates, BODY WORLDS 1 offers visitors a rare opportunity to see the complexity of human anatomy and physiology.
Never before has an exhibition offered such an intimate look at the human body. More than 200 real human specimens -- whole bodies, healthy and diseased organs, body sections and slices -- present a one-of-a-kind anatomy and physiology lesson.
See how your body's systems relate to one another and work in concert to help you function and survive.

Lili, an impulsive, 19-year-old living in Paris, meets a mysterious, young Moroccan man with whom she falls instantly in love. After learning of his involvement in a botched bank robbery, she flees Paris with him and his two friends, embarking on a cross-continent escape through Spain, Morocco and Greece. As the police close in, Lili is abandoned and left penniless in Athens. She eventually returns to Paris hoping to pick up the pieces of her life, but never quite recovers.
