    New Science Center exhibit

    Would you take your kid to see this?

    ***WARNING*** Some of these pics may be a bit unsettling.

    I don't have kids but my wife and I are going to go see it. Not any more graphic than the text books in my opinion.

    Looks more appropriate for the art center.

    I took my kids to it several years ago. They actually asked me to go and one was under 10 at the time. I wasn't planning on taking them until they asked, but it was very educational, and we all learned a lot. I highly recommend it and I think that kids who are interested in going don't seem to have a problem, but I wouldn't force a kid who didn't want to go.

    Mine's probably a little too young, but if he were a little older I would for sure if he wanted to, not like I'd drag him to it though.

    I saw this exhibit in Chicago a few years ago. It is actually very cool.

    I went to this in Chicago too. I recommend checking it out. It's pretty cool. When I went they had a body on horse.

    It looks like you can touch a couple of the displays. You couldn't do that at the Chicago exhibit.

    Saw it couple of years ago in Minny. Very interesting, but not for everyone (some people vehemently opposed to this exhibitions due to various reasons).

    Saw it in Chicago with my kids, and I wondered if they would get freaked out. They actually didn't and thought it was neat.

    Re: New Science Center exhibit

    I definitely want to see it, though it will bring back memories of my part-time job of autopsy assistant while I was in law school.

    Had a similar exhibit called Bodies Revealed a couple summers ago in KC. I went to check it out, thought it was well worth the trip.
