Seoul Body Worlds Exhibit

The War Memorial Museum of Korea has been hosting the Body Worlds exhibit.

Gunther Von Hagens’ Body Worlds exhibits are shown all over the world and each one has a different theme. The theme for the exhibit in Seoul is The Cycle of Life. It all starts with…

….the development of embryo and fetus.
