Running through the rigors of daily life, it's hard to appreciate the little things--like how we keep breathing, walking and talking.
The Bodies: Revealed exhibit at Discovery Center of Idaho is an opportunity to take a moment and appreciate the wonder of the human body. The exhibit, which has been at the hands-on museum since September 2012, will finish its run at the end of the month. But before the bodies get packed up, DCI is hosting one of its popular Adult Nights to celebrate the show Tuesday, March 19.
Adult Night features physicians from Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center and other medical professionals answering questions about the anatomical specimens, delivering lectures and guiding tours.
With 12 full-body specimens and more than 150 organs and partial specimens on display, curious patrons can take a closer look at the muscle structures that make us move or focus on the vital organs we trust to work day and night. Using a new preservation technique with liquid silicone polymer, the bodies retain their true forms and structures to provide as unadulterated a viewing experience as possible.
But since we're still walking around, celebrate being alive by sipping local wine and beer from Payette Brewing, Boise Fry Company, Crooked Fence Brewing and more. There will even be gourmet cupcakes to snack on while you admire the circulatory system.
The $20 cost of admission includes the first drink and full access to the exhibit.
