Has anyone gone to see this exhibition? It's supposed to be real human organs that have been preserved; healthy and unhealthy. The exhibition just opened in Sacramento and I was wondering if it was good enough to pay the ticket price! :-) It sounds pretty amazing and will be here for about 5 months.

I have seen it twice here in chicago. Well worth the money, it was so interesting and only a little creepy. I went with my whole family. My dad was fascinated, he is the reason we went back. There was one that was a man sitting on a rearing horse....amazing.

Is this the Body Works Exhibit? It was here in Charlotte for along time at Discovery Place. Apparently it was very popular!

I missed it when it came to Florida one year while I was still living there, though if it comes to Des Moines or Ames or somewhere I will probably go for sure! It seemed very interesting and I've heard it is WELL worth the money especially if you're into anatomy and all that.

Thanks everyone, I think we will go and see it. Sounds pretty cool. From what I heard on one of our local newscasts, there are two versions of same exhibition going around the world; but they are just named differently. It does sound kind of creepy but kind of interesting. Hey, VV, I was wondering if someone would wonder what kind of stuff this mod might be posting on! Hee hee. It is kind of an odd name!
