GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) -- The Grand Rapids Public Museum is hosting a traveling exhibition featuring whole and partial body specimens that have been dissected and preserved.

"Bodies Revealed" opened Saturday and runs through May 1.

The exhibit includes full body specimens, additional organs and partial specimens. The displays offer a look inside human skeletal, muscular, respiratory and circulatory systems.

Organizers say the bodies, which are preserved through a process called polymer preservation, are respectfully presented. They say they hope the exhibit will educate and inspire youth to enter health care fields.

The museum says it conducted community focus groups before deciding to host the exhibition.
