Body Worlds and The Human Body

Today, Travel Friend and I went to the Science Museum of Minnesota to see the Omnifilm, The Human Body, and the Body Worlds Exhibit. If you get the chance to see these, I recommend you do so. The movie showed actual movies of the different systems of the body working-hearing, muscular, skeletal, reproductive, and digestive in a tasteful and sometimes humorous manner. The exhibit was actual bodies disected to show muscles, tendons, bones, organs, heart and blood vessels, some healthy and some diseased. Yes, this sounds gory and distasteful, but it really wasn't. Actually the models looked like plastic, but the details were more graphic than the flat pictures we had in our nursing anatomy books. It was interesting to see the relationship of the organs to each other and the bone structure. Go and see it-I came away with a feeling of awe for the miraculous machine our body is. The red bean chili in the Elements Cafe was good, too.
