International sensation Gunther Von Hagens' Body Worlds Vital has made its way to Melbourne.

Displaying at Melbourne Showgrounds, Body Worlds Vital is the first exhibition of its kind to inform the visitor about anatomy, physiology and health through viewing real human bodies.

The exhibition has been seen by over 46 million visitors globally and now Australians have the opportunity to visit this unique attraction.

The exhibition has been touring the world since 1995 and has visited over 120 cities across 26 countries in Europe, Asia, America and Africa, with Melbourne Showgrounds the latest place this international exhibition has called home.

With the capacity to host large-scale public events and the flexibility for use of private, smaller spaces, Melbourne Showgrounds is the ideal venue choice for any sized event.

“Melbourne Showgrounds is the perfect home for exhibitions such as Body Worlds. It’s so versatile and the various pavilions can be tailored to suit many needs,” said Paul Guerra, CEO of Melbourne Showgrounds.

Located only seven kilometres from Melbourne’s CBD and 15 minutes from Melbourne Airport, Melbourne Showgrounds is an easy to access venue for both small and large events and exhibitions.

“As Victoria’s largest and most versatile indoor/outdoor venue, Melbourne Showgrounds is the ideal space for events and exhibitions in Melbourne,” said Mr Guerra.

The Body Worlds Vital exhibition coincided with the Royal Melbourne Show this year as a feature attraction for Show visitors.

Conducted by The Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria (RASV), the Royal Melbourne Show is Victoria’s largest and most iconic annual community event.

“We are excited that this year Body Worlds Vital was a feature attraction at the Royal Melbourne Show. It was extremely successful with visitors taking advantage of the discounted tickets to the exhibition during the Show.”

“This unique exhibition was a great fit with the Royal Melbourne Show and we are thrilled that Show visitors were treated to an international exhibition of such high calibre,” Mr Guerra said.

Body Worlds Vital is now on at Melbourne Showgrounds and runs until 18 November 2018.
