Prenatal Development

Saturday, April 18, 2015

Today our Chicago adventuring led us to the Museum of Science and Industry. A highlight was seeing the Prenatal Development display - the Museum's collection of 24 real human embryos and fetuses. Ranging from 28 days to 38 weeks, this timeline vividly captures the amazing stages of growth and development before birth.
Originally donated to the Museum in 1939, the collection has been newly interpreted in a darkened gallery to allow for quiet reflection.
