RICHMOND, Va. -- The Science Museum of Virginia's traveling exhibition "BODY WORLDS: ANIMAL INSIDE OUT" opens Saturday, May 5.

This exhibition allows guest to take a unique look at animal anatomy from a rarely-seen perspective using the amazing science of Plastination, invented by BODY WORLDS creator and anatomist, Dr. Gunther von Hagens.

The exhibit features more than 100 plastinates – from complete bodies to tiny specimens. Some of the highlights include the world’s tallest mammal, the giraffe; the elusive giant squid; and a magnificent bull, with its heart five times the size of a human’s.
