Singapore Science Centre Unveils Exhibition Of The Human Body

By  |  0 Comments

Through a multi-sensory experience, visitors will learn more about the human body.

The Science Centre Singapore (SCS) is bringing a unique larger-than-life 3D interactive journey of the human anatomy to offer visitors an endoscopic view of how the body functions. Called the Human Body Experience (HBX), the exhibition shows the inner workings of the brain, lungs, digestive system and circulatory system. Visitors enter through the mouth of a giant face and pass through a twisting maze of tunnels through the throat and stomach. The exhibits are sculpted representations of body parts and the exhibition is replete with special effects including strobe lighting, mist spray, confined spaces, unsteady surfaces, tactile sculptures, optical illusions, holograms, audio, 3D video and touch pads to provide a unique sensory experience that closely resembles the inside of a human body. Audio-visual narration engages visitors as they go through the exhibition, helping to educate and interact as they learn about the human body.

Associate Professor Lim Tit Meng, Chief Executive, Science Centre Singapore, said, “We are all curious about our body and how we function, but other than X-rays and graphical illustrations, many will not have the chance to really see and understand what goes on inside the body. The Human Body Experience is a unique concept that we have forayed into for the first time to offer an exhibition that combines education and entertainment with a multi-sensory encounter with science. The 1,000 square metres exhibit allows people to climb through every part of a giant body.”

The exhibition is located at Hall B of SCS and will run for two years starting 31 May 2014. A gated attraction, tickets are priced at S$20 for adults and S$15 for children, including admission to Science Centre Singapore.
