On Sunday my son and I went to Telus World of Science to see Dr. Gunther von Hagens’ Body Worlds exhibit. It was exensive, $56 for the two of us, but that included an eye-opener of an omnimax film called The Human Body which complimented the exhibit greatly. All told, we spent four hours at Telus World of Science on what was one of the wettest afternoons in Vancouver’s damp history.
Both of us enjoyed ourselves and the plastinated bodies were more awe-inspiring than creepy, although the diseased organs were a little off-putting. I don’t understand why so many people have decided this show to be unethical, unsuitable, blah, blah, blah… In the end it makes you think and ask questions and therein lies its value. Go see it for yourself.
