I went to this great exhibition today and I learned so many things about the human body I didn't know about. And just the thought that all the bodies and body parts are from real people, made it a very interesting experience!

Has anyone heard about this or been to?

If you had the chance, would you?

It was in Amsterdam a couple of years back, I really wanted to go and see it... But never got round to it. Wish it'd come back :( The university in my home town has a similar permanent exhibition though, however much smaller, and most parts of it only accessible to students.

That's really interesting, Lora ! But I'm sure I'd freak out if I was there. Bodies and body parts, anatomy and dissection is not really my thing. :o

But its very good you've learned new things as well.

Yea, he had this in London, and he did a live autopsy on people for channel 4 a while back that caused some people to moan. Was all interesting.

I'm totally going! :D
...If I find someone willing to come with me that is. Seriously, everyone I mention it to just gives me the "Sure, whatever you say" look.

I read the title of this as BOOBIES...

Anyway, thatís pretty cool, I've never heard of that place before. It sounds interesting don't know if I could bring myself to go, things like that make me squeamish.

Glad you enjoyed it :)

There were some people on TV discussing whether or not this is ethical. It's a bit disturbing but if the bodies were donated......

I saw this exhibit last summer. I wasn't expecting to be squeamish, but it really got to me and freaked me out. I did not like it at all.

Donated according to the Chinese government, which of course has a stellar record for upholding human rights :whi:
