About The Exhibit

Our Body: The Universe Within is a traveling science exhibit on human anatomy presented by ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center in partnership with the University of Vermont College of Medicine.

The exhibit consists of six galleries of actual human specimens in a logical presentation of the biological systems of the human body: Musculoskeletal, Head and Nervous, Urinary/Reproductive (including a unit on prenatal), Digestive, Respiratory, and Cardiovascular. The exhibition was designed to educate, enlighten, and allow all who attend to understand the complexities of the human body and to see how each system functions and relates to all the other systems. As a way to orient the visitor, the exhibit opens with a display of the history of anatomy throughout the ages from the earliest drawings to the present-day process of plastination.

The interactive map below will give you a detailed description of each exhibit section. Simply place your cursor over the area of interest and view the pop-up information window.
