People Love Plastination
The Perot Museum of Nature and Science has hosted the Animal Inside Out traveling exhibit since last September, but apparently five months just isn't quite enough. The museum has extended the exhibit until February 23.
That's only six days more than it was originally scheduled to be in Dallas, but the exhibit has proven so popular that the Perot wanted to give us all a little more time to appreciate it.
What that is, in case you have yet to experience it, is a creepy yet fascinating look at the inner workings of multiple animals brought to you by the makers of Body Worlds. Animals like a giant squid, bull, giraffe, dog and many more were preserved via a process called plastination, allowing visitors to see their muscles, organs, blood vessels and more in intricate detail.
All in all, the exhibit features more than 100 animals in one form or another, making for an exhibit that fits right in with the central goal of the Perot Museum. By adding to its stay, the museum has given a little gift to all you procrastinators out there.
