This has been around for a while... but, if you've not seen one of these exhibits, I highly recommend them :-)

http://www.bodyworlds.com/index.html

There is some controversy about the provence of the bodies... with rumors that they are chinese prisoners who were executed so that the body could be 'sold' for these exhibits.

I could see no evidence that the bodies were asian - the eyes were typically visible in a way that showed the shape of the eyelids...They all appeared european/caucasion and/or black.

The exhibits are real popular, therefore, plan for lines, buy tickets early/online, etc.

Fascinating
