The Body Worlds and The Cycle of Life is currently being hosted at Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront and I went to see it yesterday. I’d heard much about this from friends and family who had been in London, and as somebody with a natural fascination for anatomy, our genetic makeup and health, I was intrigued.

It truly is an incredible exhibition, created by scientist, Dr. GuntherVon Hagens, it shows the complexity, resilience and vulnerability of the human body using the Plastination method of preservation. Besides an in-depth look at what is going on under our skin’s surface, the exhibition truly promotes good health, diet and lifestyle, and when comparing healthy lungs to those that aren’t, its a true motivator. 

We are complex beautiful beings, inside and out.

Only on until the end of January, do get tickets. Adults are at R140, Seniors/Students at R110 and Children at R90. Tickets are sold at 1 hour intervals to manage visitor flow and you need about and hour and a half inside. Remember to get there about half an hour before the booked time, as there are queue as a result of the small groups allowed any at any time.

There is also an Animals Body Worlds expo which I am hoping will come to Cape Town soon enough.
