Body Worlds

Spent this evening at the Tech Museum in San Jose with one of my kids from work, Double-D, and his parents. We went specifically to the Body Worlds exhibit. It was absolutely amazing. The human body is incredible, and I’m surprised that all the pieces function together as well as they do. The experience was even better because Double-D’s Dad is a doctor, so he could tell us all kinds of things about the exhibits.

If you haven’t seen Body Worlds yet, I highly recommend it. Please note that it did make me a little queasy. It was really hard when I realized that these were all real people who used to have skin and parents and friends and that they loved and learned and lived. I found that it helped to take deep breaths and look away occasionally.

You can see Body Worlds in the following North American locations:

San Jose until January 26, 2008
Milwaukee Jan 18 – June 1, 2008
Baltimore Feb 2 – Sept 1, 2008
Los Angeles March 14 – Sept 7, 2008
