From digital brains to giant horse hearts to historical wax models to "exploded" human skulls, anatomical models come in all types and have a lot to teach us. We invite you to a short tour of our most prized and representative human and animal anatomical models from our collection. Learn about the history of anatomy at Cambridge, discover the artistic side of anatomy, touch and play with 3D models, and much more!

At 5:30PM each day there will be brief talks (30 min) in the Anatomy Lecture Theatre with our academics.
