Man I'm really blown away by the Bodies The Exhibition in Vegas today. I thought of it the whole drive home. Leaving Vegas driving through the dessert makes you really think, "what is life?" Looking at bodies in the raw, from the smallest embryo, to fetus to full human bodies and their individual parts in all their art, wonder and beauty was profound. Muscles, bones, veins, fat, brain, heart, lungs, eyes, skin...all shown in their singular splendor. The small hormones created by the pituitary gland, hippocampus, thyroid gland and others create the chemicals that drive us: fear, hunger, anger, love, passion, survival instincts...that is life. A mix of chemicals creating emotions that have helped us and help us evolve into these creative, brilliant, destructive, complex works of art. So humbling and inspiring, I hope they expand this exhibit everywhere and make them into a moving art show!

As an aspiring Medical Assistant student, going to this exhibit was a great. I at least was letting another medium teach me a few things about the human body that normally several powerpoint and boring classroom setting lectures would. I get an up-close and personal insight into the human body, learn which body part functions alone or with the aid of either a nervous system or reproductive system. Yes it wasn't as thrilling as a rock concert/ show or a strip show, but it's interesting. There were factoids about the human body that I never knew about. I never knew that I would start my life as an embryo and grow up to be a fully healthy infant ready to take on life one day at a time. To those claiming that this exhibit or self guided tour museum is nothing, but a waste of time, well think again. You're being educated about the human body, let's face it you're being taught about YOUR body and how YOUR body functions.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Nannie What a waste of my time
I specifically traveled to see Bodies from down South. First of all, the prices were cheaper at the box office than I paid for through Vegas.com. Second of all, the elevator was broken, so we had to take the stairs through the exit to begin viewing the exhibit. Therefore, we saw the exhibit backwards. Third, there was no one around to help guide you through the exhibit. I saw one man dressed in a lab coat. For all I know, he bought it at Walmart. I have been a Registered Nurse for over twenty years-I was really looking forward to the exhibit. shame, Shame, Shame. So disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheWackers So interesting!
This exhibit was amazing! It was very personal and a wonderful slow pace. We were able to take our time and read each exhibit. I think it took us more than an hour and a half to go through the entire place and it was cool and quiet. Just what we needed to get away from all of the sites, sounds and smells of the casino!
Each exhibit was amazing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DonB This exhibition was an eye opener into the workings of our body!
To view the human body as shown in this exhibit is like exploring the depths of the ocean. Most people never get to see or learn about the marvelous engineering that makes our bodies work. The displays show and explain how intricately made we are and how many of our functions operate. The experience was fascinating, informative and respectfully presented. I feel that this exhibit provides an important view for all of us to learn about the body we live in. The one negative in the presentation was the reference to how our bodies evolved which is truly an unsubstantiated theory. It would be best for all to leave out the references to evolution and let the viewer make their own determination based on what they see from this exhibit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by gdubya2000 Surprised by how much I didn't like Bodies
Let me preface this review by saying others will completely disagree, and that's fine. My wife wanted to go see the Bodies Exhibit while in Vegas, and I was pretty ambivalent about it. However, that ambivalence quickly disappeared when we got into the exhibit. I found it disturbing that humans, who did not consent, have had their remains sliced, diced, and preserved in ways that certainly do not give dignity. We ended up spending a total of about 20 minutes at the exhibition because we couldn't get past the unethical aspects of what we were seeing. If you think that might bother you, then use your time and cash elsewhere.
