Anatomist Dr Gunther von Hagens is famed for his Body Worlds exhibitions, which have delighted museumgoers worldwide.

Now though, he is back with a new tour which allows people to see the innards of animals.

Animal Inside Out will be travelling across the US soon - but guests at Chicago hotels will be the first to catch it, as it receives its American premiere in the Windy City.

The Museum of Science and Industry will be its first stopping-off point, where the exhibition will reside between March 14th and September 2nd.

Visitors have the opportunity to see the intricate biology and physiology of creatures including goats, giraffes, octopuses and ostriches thanks to the technique of plastination, which replaces the body's fluids with plastics to preserve them perfectly.

Tickets cost $12 for adults and $8 for children, so it could be the perfect activity for families visiting the city this year.

Guests at the Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel Chicago can get to the museum easily by taxi, as it is just 15 minutes away by road.
