REAL BODIES at Bally's
While modern medicine can do things that would once have been considered miraculous, the inner workings of the human body remain mysterious to most people. Have you ever wondered what you look like on the inside? Are you curious about how your muscles and bones work together to make movement possible? REAL BODIES at Bally’s allows you to see the human body from the inside out.
This is the real thing, not an artist’s representation. More than 20 human bodies reverently preserved and displayed, along with 200 more anatomical specimens, to give you an incredible view of the flesh and bone parts of ourselves. Every display seeks to show you how the physical, spiritual, and emotional aspects come together to make you the person you are.

While guests of all ages are welcome to visit REAL BODIES at Bally’s, discretion is advised as some displays may be disturbing to small children.

FAQ about REAL BODIES at Bally’s
Q: Where do the bodies come from?
A: The bodies and specimens in the REAL BODIES exhibits come from Dalian Hoffen Bio-Technique Co. Ltd. They are unclaimed bodies donated to medical schools in China. An unclaimed body is a person who died with no relatives to claim him or her. The authorities conducted a reasonable search within the time set by the laws of the jurisdiction. All of the donations were legal, and none of the people were prisoners or victims of any type of trauma. The bodies died of natural causes and had no sign of any infectious diseases.
Q: How are the bodies preserved?
A: The process is called plastination, or polymer preservation, and it can take up to one year. Liquid silicone rubber is used to stop the naturally occurring breakdown, permanently preserving the body.
Q: What should visitors take away from the exhibit?
A: The experience is a fun and fascinating way to learn about yourself in a way that is accessible and approachable. The human form is resilient now, as it has always been, and visitors should leave with an uplifting sense of hope. The displays highlight the fact that no matter how different people are on the outside, they are remarkably similar at the most basic human level.
