On the Friday 29th of June, a fantastic opportunity came to 4.1 class. The fantastic opportunity was a day visit to the Real Bodies exhibition at the NEC.
The plan was to go to the Real Bodies for a tour of the exhibition, then go to have lunch at Resorts world. We opted to go to Gourmet Burger Kitchen.
Real Bodies presents the artful display of 20 real, perfectly preserved human bodies and over 200 anatomical specimens, inviting visitors of all ages to examine the human experience from the first breath to the last in a dramatic and moving display. Real Bodies digs deeper into the beauty of the body, mind and soul than any other exhibition of its kind and invites you to explore the entire human experience from the first breath to the last. What are we made of? Where do we come from? Why are we here? Real Bodies consists of dramatic and compelling galleries that offer unique perspectives on human anatomy and its importance in world cultures as well and the emotional expression embedded in each of our physiological functions. This comprehensive educational exhibition pushes boundaries while seemlessly blending art, science and emotion as a museum of self. It was much darker inside than outside, and everyone was interested in the exhibition stands.
Afterwards we skirted along the side of a big lake and entered Gourmet Burger Kitchen to have our lunch which was delicious! We then had around 20-30 minutes free time to do some shopping inside resorts world.
Overall, it was a fantastic trip and we all had great fun.
