‘BODIES … The Exhibition’ Makes its World Debut

ATLANTA, July 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Premier Exhibitions, Inc. (BULLETIN BOARD: PXHB) , today announced that the Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) in Tampa, Florida will serve as the first venue to host BODIES … The Exhibition. The Exhibition is scheduled to open on August 20, 2005 and run through February 2006.

BODIES … The Exhibition provides the public with a unique opportunity to see inside carefully preserved anatomical specimens and learn the detailed structure and function of the human body. All of the anatomical specimens in BODIES … The Exhibition are legally received and painstakingly prepared by medical university experts for the purpose of study and education. The end result is a human specimen that is examined without any deterioration due to normal decomposition.

The polymer preservation process allows a human tissue to be preserved enabling one to vividly showcase the complex intricacies of the human body. The process, along with others, is also used to supply anatomical specimens to medical schools as teaching aids.

“Our purpose in bringing this exhibition to MOSI is to enlighten, educate, empower and inspire,” said Wit Ostrenko, President of the Tampa Museum of Science and Industry. “We hope that this exhibition will inspire young people to explore careers in medicine and will motivate everyone to make healthier life choices.”

BODIES … The Exhibition features 20 body specimens, 260 organs and partial body specimens which provide a closer look at the skeletal, muscular, circulatory and respiratory systems. Nearly 20 million people throughout Europe and Asia have already visited similar exhibitions.

Dr. Roy Glover, Chief Medical Advisor for BODIES … The Exhibition, states, “As I’ve discovered in my more than 30 years of teaching anatomy to medical students, seeing promotes understanding and understanding promotes the most practical kind of body education possible. This exhibition gives its audience the power to see how amazing their bodies really are.”

The Tampa Museum of Science & Industry is the largest science center in the southeastern United States and home to the only IMAX Dome Theatre in the state of Florida. MOSI is accredited by the American Association of Museums and by the Association of Science-Technology Centers.

Premier Exhibitions, Inc. is a major provider of museum quality touring exhibitions throughout the world and proudly presents BODIES … The Exhibition at MOSI in association with Jam Exhibitions and Concert Promotions International.
