I just want to start off by saying this post might not be for everyone. I’m a science geek & find this kind of exhibition fascinating & informative. But I’m also fully aware this might not be for some people. That is totally okay. Real Bodies “explores life by displaying more than 20 real, perfectly preserved human bodies and more than 200 anatomical specimens” & some of them are photographed here. Keep reading to check out our experience!
Let me just say- Ryan wasn’t enthused. He didn’t think this would interest him in the least. We were both shocked when the entire exhibit was beautifully laid out with lots of space, information, & actually some though-provoking extras. We were both incredibly intrigued & so glad we were able to check it out during our staycation at Bally’s!

REAL BODIES at Bally’s uses real human specimens that have been respectfully preserved to explore the complex inner workings of the human form in a refreshing and thought-provoking style. System by system, the exhibition provides an approachable and fascinating insight into what’s happening inside every one of us. REAL BODIES at Bally’s also explores how elements such as breathing, hunger, the rhythm of the heart, and other essential body functions have deep cultural and emotional significance that reach as far back as the dawn of humanity.
Bottom-line is we had an amazing time. They let you wander at your own pace. Some areas we spent longer amounts of time- like this awesome room above! Seeing everything lit up really let you see how intricate our bodies are! It was also incredibly interesting & moving to see what certain diseases & illnesses look like.
I practically had a spiritual experience seeing what cancer really looks like & the smoker’s lungs. I felt so incredibly blessed to have quit & to really see it up close. I think everyone knows someone with cancer or has lost someone.
