Body of Knowledge: A History of Anatomy

Body of Knowledge: A History of Anatomy explores the study and teaching of anatomy as a complex social and cultural activity through three important periods in the history of anatomy: the sixteenth, nineteenth, and twenty-first centuries. Collection objects, historical imagery, 3-D settings, and multimedia experiences invite visitors to enter a sixteenth-century dissection "theater," investigate nineteenth-century anatomical practices, and explore how modern methods and techniques, including the use of digital technology, are transforming anatomical education.

Regular museum admission rates apply.
