Celebrating over 50,000 visitors, REAL BODIES only in Dublin, the highly original and thought-provoking exhibition of human anatomy has been extended until 31 August 2017 due to phenomenal public demand.

Real Bodies in Dublin welcomed their 50,000th visitor to the exhibition on 28 April 2017 with teachers Sarah McErlane & Alison Leahy presented with flowers an champagne on their arrival with their students from The Teresian School, Donnybrook.

Open daily at Dublin’s Ambassador Theatre from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., tickets are available to purchase at the Ambassador Theatre box office and Ticketmaster outlets nationwide. Tickets priced from €14 for adults and from €8 for children, via Ticketmaster outlets nationwide, and at The Ambassador Box Office 7 days a week. All ticket prices include booking fee. Special rates available for schools, families, students, unemployed & OAPs.

This powerful exhibition explores life by displaying real, 14 perfectly preserved human bodies and more than 200 anatomical specimens. More than a simple display of human specimens, REAL BODIES will connect audiences to a deeper sense of what it means to be alive. Founded on anatomical, cultural, and emotional narratives, the exhibition transforms the way we view the mysterious organism we all share – the human body – and reminds us of all the complexity and magic within us that we often take for granted. REAL BODIES digs deeper into the beauty of the body, mind, and soul than any other exhibition of its kind, and invites you to explore the entire human experience from the first breath to the last.

REAL BODIES consists of dramatic and compelling galleries that offer unique perspectives on human anatomy and its importance to world cultures as well as the emotional expression embedded in each of our physiological functions. The exhibition pushes boundaries while seamlessly blending art, science, and emotion as a museum of the self. Exploring these systems within the body, REAL BODIES reveals deep synergy between breathing, hunger, the rhythm of the heart, love, motion, thought, and medicine that makes each person unique.

Ossuary_visitorsREAL BODIES takes visitors on a journey asking them to explore who they are, where they come from and what they choose to do with the life and body they have been given.

“While the exhibition moves through the human body using a system by system approach, the exhibition also looks far beyond the physical aspects of these systems,” said President and CEO of Imagine Exhibitions Tom Zaller. “It explores the symbolic and cultural significance that these systems have had from the beginning of time, human evolution through time and questions why we do what we do and how we do it. Whether or not a visitor is spiritual, they’ll emerge from REAL BODIES with a sense of greater connection—a connection to the whole of humanity.”
