There’s a new educational exhibition at Broadway at the Beach this summer, and it’s one not to be missed! BODIES HUMAN: Anatomy in Motion exposes the inner workings of the human body through anatomical displays, artfully created reproductions, and actual human specimens, including 100 organs and six full bodies. Visitors vacationing on the Grand Strand can connect with these human artifacts to better understand their own bodies.

Called “the most amazing exhibit of our time,” BODIES HUMAN: Anatomy in Motion gives the general public a fascinating look at what only doctors and scientists would normally see first hand. This eye-opening exhibition literally goes “under the skin,” exposing the intricacy of the human body and highlighting anatomy studies over the past 1,000 years.

In case you’re wondering how they do it, specimens have been carefully preserved through a polymer impregnation process. This process replaces fluids with polymers that prevent decay and decomposition. The tour is self-guided, but plan to spend an hour or two going through the galleries.

BODIES HUMAN: Anatomy in Motion is tastefully done and is considered appropriate for all ages, with supplemental guides offered online for families who wish to learn more. Of course, every individual is different, and parents are encouraged to use their best judgment — for more information and for a small sample of what you will see, please visit bodiesmyrtle.com.

Tickets to BODIES HUMAN: Anatomy in Motion start at $15.50. Discounted tickets of $12.50 are available for seniors ages 65 and up, as well as students, military personnel and their family members. Tickets for children ages 5 to 14 are $10.50, and age four and under are free. An adult must accompany all children under the age of 12. The exhibition is located at Broadway at the Beach, at 1138 Celebrity Circle in Myrtle Beach, next to Margaritaville.

Catch Bodies in Motion while you still can. This traveling exhibit is scheduled to run through September 29, 2019. For a great deal on a rental property during your stay on the Grand Strand, contact Vacation Rentals of North Myrtle Beach, and ask about our summer specials!

Looking for a unique family experience outside the norm? Then Myrtle Beach has got you covered! There are plenty of weird and wonderful places here for all ages to discover. First, there’s Wonderworks, an upside down, indoor amusement park that is sure to catch your attention. Then pop on over to the new Hollywood Wax Museum — you’ll be shocked to see how realistic your favorite celebrities look! The next stop, Dinosaurs the Exhibition, where you’ll feel like you traveled back in time to learn about dinosaurs up close! And finally, Ripley’s Odditorium has just enough weirdness to keep even the most reluctant traveler interested. Keep reading for more about the weird and wonderful places to visit in Myrtle Beach!

WonderWorks

This 50,000 square foot indoor amusement park combines education and entertainment with more than 100 hands on exhibits. As the story goes, a once top-secret laboratory was located in the Bermuda Triangle. An experiment went wrong, lifting the laboratory, and carrying it to Broadway at the Beach in Myrtle Beach, where it landed upside down. Luckily all of the exhibits remained intact! While the story may be something of a fairytale, the fact that WonderWorks is great for families of all ages remains true.

Children will be delighted when they become a human lightning rod, or create bubbles big enough to fit inside. The braver members of your family can challenge themselves by lying on a bed of 3500 nails or completing the glow-in-the-dark indoor ropes course three stories above the ground. Those feeling silly can create a 3-D image of their body using a gigantic pin wall made of 40,000 pins. Or nudge your active kid to attempt to generate enough power to spin a complete 360-degrees in the Xtreme 360-degrees Bike Challenge.

Other fun and educational zones at WonderWorks include Light & Sound, Space Discovery, Natural Disasters, Physical Challenge, Far Out Art Gallery, and the Imagination Lab.

Your family will stay busy, possibly grossed out or amazed, with 12 themed galleries and over 200 exhibits and artifacts within the museum. There is sure to be something for everyone, and we challenge you to visit without learning something new. This museum is located at the corner of 8th Avenue North and Ocean Boulevard, right across from the beach. Believe it…. or not!
