UPDATE: the John P. McGovern Museum of Health & Medical Science cancelled this exhibit.
This sounds really interesting. Morbid, but interesting.
Cadaver exhibits coming to Houston
— reported by KHOU CBS Channel 11(1)
A battle of the bodies is brewing as competing versions of a controversial exhibit of preserved human corpses head to Houston. The first, “Bodies: The Exhibition” will open in mid-April for a six-month run at the John P. McGovern Museum of Health & Medical Science. The Museum of Natural Science will unveil the second, the original BodyWorlds, sometime this summer.
The less well-known Museum of Health & Medical Science, located near the Children’s Museum, is hoping for its first blockbuster, with as many as 550,000 visitors paying up to $19.95 apiece. It’s unclear how big a bite the competing show will take.
