Plastination

Eureka! Zientzia museoa has the pleasure of presenting a unique exhibition. This new hall is housing a compilation of BONES and PLASTINATED body parts from individuals who decided to donate their bodies to science. The result is this collection in which you will be able to admire the true essence of the human body with a wealth of detail.
We will be able to observe different parts of the bodies of both humans and other animals, to discover what we are like on the inside so that we can compare ourselves.

We have bones that are totally real and that have only been subjected to whitening treatment, and organs that have been plastinated so they can be preserved and exhibited.
The human torso, which is the central piece in our exhibition is an item that reflects the beauty and complexity hidden under our skin, in a way that has never been achieved before.

Enjoy a visit that will leave no one indifferent.



PLASTINATION
In 1977 Gunther Von Hagens, a German anatomist known as Dr. Death, invented plastination. This is a technique that makes it possible to preserve bodies, tissues, organs… in perfect condition, while respecting the features and appearance of the original item. By using this technique, we can stop a body’s putrefaction process to keep it intact and complete so it can be used, for example, in educational activities or exhibitions like the one that we are offering here.
