EDITOR'S NOTE: This version corrects the ticket prices for Imagination Station and the Bodies Revealed exhibit.

Imagination Station opens the Bodies Revealed exhibit Saturday, featuring 10 full human bodies and more than 150 partial specimens that were dissected and hardened with a technique called polymer preservation. Visitors will get a detailed look at skeletal, muscular, reproductive, respiratory, circulatory, and other systems of the body, as well as how disease and unhealthy lifestyles affect them. The exhibit runs through Sept. 18. For nonmembers, admission to Imagination Station is $9 for adults (13 and older), $8 for seniors (65 and older), and $7 for children (3-12). Bodies Revealed requires an additional ticket: $9 for adults, $8 for seniors, and $7 for children. Members get into Imagination Station for free, and their Bodies Revealed fee is $6. Imagination Station, at Summit and Adams streets, is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. Information: 419-244-2674 or imaginationstationtoledo.org.
