Juno is on display again!

In January 2007, HealthSpace Cleveland merged with The Cleveland Museum of Natural History. This change has allowed the Museum to continue the tradition of providing health and life-science education. [...and displaying a see-thru woman with visible organs.]

Juno is soon to be homeless again. The October 29th, 2006, edition of the The Plain Dealer newspaper reports that HealthSpace Cleveland, her current home, will close as of December 30th, 2006.

The Cleveland Health Education Museum, home of "Juno, the transparent woman," is undergoing radical surgery to save it from a near-fatal case of attendance dropsy.

Juno the Transparent Woman

Juno is currently homeless. But she is traveling. The foundation that own's the Health Museum in Cleveland has demolished the old building and is currently in the process of building a new and improved one. From what I have read in the local papers Juno is currently roving the state of Ohio in her own semi trailer as a part of a movable health exhibit touring state public schools. They give a rough date of late 2003 for the opening of the new museum. So hopefully Juno will have a nice relaxing vacation visiting the kids.
