What do you think of this? I found it very interesting, if a little macabre. I wish I lived closer to a place that might actually have this exhibit.

Wow thanks for that! I haven't heard about that being in Toronto at all, now we're going to go see it. I remember seeing how they make these on Discovery channel a while ago. I think it's fascinating.

I went to see it. It was pretty interesting. Crowded though. I think we spent more time waiting in line to get in then we actually spent inside

I've never seen it but I heard about it on TV. If it were closer I would go for sure...it's amazing.

I saw it at Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry and it was AWESOME! I'd totally reccommend it!

I saw it when it was in Chicago, too. I agree...it was AWESOME. I'm easily grossed out, and was afraid that it would be too icky for me, but it turned out fine. It's really tastefully done and it's so fascinating that you forget that you're actually looking at dead bodies. My girlfriend is a biology teacher, and a former medical technologist, and she told me she learned more about the body there than in her anatomy classes.

I saw them on TV, and I was a wee bit grossed out. when i was younger my family went to a museum in chicago that actually had cross sections cut out of somebody's body- basically a side view of the organs. Gross! I also saw in the british museum the "peat man" under glass.

We have something similar currently visiting the Museum of Science and Industry in Tampa.

I remember watching the live autopsy on TV - it was fascinating!! I would definitely like to visit an exhibition to get a closer look!

I have seen a real autopsy, and it did not look nearly as interesting. I love the pic on the home page with the guy holding up his skin. I had been considering donating my body to research, but this might be even better.

I saw it when it was in the U.K a couple of years ago. Yes it is Macabre but it was facinating and impressive. The image that I have in my mind was the man on a horse which was fantastic.

I have always wanted to go there, my best friend went there and loved it! I am so jealous!
