Did anyone go to this? It's currently traveling around the country. I know it's in Vegas and LA right now.

Apparently they got busted for using cadavers of executed Chinese prisoners. They claimed they stopped doing that but who knows?

My sister took my neice when it was in town here and she really loved it. I would't go near it personally. Guess it depends on the weakness of your stomach.

I went to it. It's really cool. But yeah, it depends on if dead shit gives you the heebee-jeebees or not. Most of them are so dissected or flayed open that they hardly seem real. Open casket funerals are way more creepy to me.

grossed me out a bit at first, but it's pretty cool

I saw Bodies when it was here in San Diego. I found it very interesting, although I later came to find out that it was a knock off and incredibly less ethical version of an exhibit called Body Worlds. From what I have been told by executive museum staff here, the rumors about Bodies using cadavers of prisoners without consent was true. Kinda shady. Body Worlds is touring again and is apparently new, and will be at our museum next March through October I believe. I thought that it was going to be kind of gruesome, but everything was presented very scientifically, and it wasn't gross or disturbing. I'd recommend checking it out.
