Body Worlds at Science Centre

Definitely not for the faint of heart or easily nauseated!  This was a really interesting exhibit.  My main criticism is that there were tons of male specimens and only a handful (if that) of females.  I would also have loved to have seem more on pregnancy, fetuses, babies/small children, and cross sections of my reproductive system and genitalia.  So, it was pretty ""male"" all around but I realize that it all depends on who donates their bodies for this type of thing.
See the Canadian Premiere!
Provocative. Awe-inspiring. Human. Gunther von Hagens' BODY WORLDS 2: The Anatomical Exhibition of Real Human Bodies is a revealing and thought-provoking look at the hidden wonders of the human body.

Featuring over 200 real human specimens including entire bodies, individual organs and body slices, this exhibition offers a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see and understand our own anatomy and health. You'll gain a new appreciation and respect for what it means to be human.
