Bodyworlds 3

Now that’s a superb exhibit - Bodyworlds. The installment in houston is called Bodyworlds 3. Seemingly gross and gory but not even remotely so. Like someone said – its almost like having X-Rays vision to view the insides of the human body (and even that of one horse, goat and fowl!)– only everyone can do this at BodyWorlds. Being able to see the insides of the human body – the intricate design and complex patterns all in such a simple design – superb. Interesting to know that the process of plastination (thats what they call the process of preserving the bodies) take 10-12 months!

Highly recommended – DO NOT miss a chance to view this exhibit when in vicinity! Thank You Gunther Von Hagen!
