The Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) is one of the largest visitor attractions in Manchester, attracting over 600,000 visitors a year. Our Commercial Department worked closely with MOSI
during its hosting of the fascinating exhibition Body Worlds. A ground breaking and controversial exhibition, it featured real human bodies preserved through a “plastination” process. This controversial preservation approach provoked a range of response from admiration to outrage.
Our role was to ensure that the exhibition complied with the law. To ensure this, we took a newly implemented law within the Human Tissue Act 2004 which was mainly aimed at licensing medical
schools and applied it to cover human tissue on public display. By doing this, we ensured that the exhibition was entirely compliant with the Act.
Thanks to our support, the exhibition was a success with MOSI’s visitors educated on the workings of the human body and the museum achieving record-breaking visitor numbers.
