Bodies…The Exhibition

November 17th, 2007


The building that was the computer/electronics store, CompUSA, is now the temporary home of the Bodies exhibit.   I thought it was really odd they chose that location but my mom thought it made sense, I guess the Bodies people thought it made sense too.
On their website they describe the exhibit as “Featuring over 200 specimens consisting of whole-bodies and individual organs that have been meticulously dissected and preserved through an innovative process, Bodies …The Exhibition will enlighten, empower, fascinate and inspire. Visit the new exhibition venue located at 500 Cochituate Rd. in beautiful Framingham, Massachusetts.”
That’s right, “beautiful Framingham, Massachusetts”- some good press for Framingham!
I may or may not go to this. I could definitely spend $24 on something else besides seeing a dead body hold a tennis racquet.  On the other hand it may be interesting and it’s close enough that if I feel so inclined, I might find myself there.  Probably not, but we’ll see.

  1. I went when the exhibit was at the Boston Science Museum last year. It’s pretty intense. They do really bizarre, artistic things to some of the bodies that is a little unsettling. I recommend it if you’re looking for something to do, though I’m not sure if it’s worth the $24.

  2. The Boston MOS exhibit is not the same exhibit that is currently in Framingham. The Boston exhibit was Bodyworlds, by Gunther von Hagens.

  3. Here’s a link to the Globe article from a couple of weeks ago:

    What a lot of people object to is the possible use of executed political prisoners from China and the Soviet Union. I don’t think I could stomach it anyway, but if I could I wouldn’t go for that reason alone.

  4. I miss CompUSA. Color me contemporarily confused, but I see these businesses always chock a block full of customers and then *poof*. Like Tower Records. People were in Tower at midnight. Dunzo.

  5. I thought the exhibits were tasteful and insightful. It is very interesting to see the human body inside out, literaly. It made me think of how much of a miracle life is, the fact that with all of these nerves and muscles and blood vessels and arteries that we have that things dont go wrong more often, and that I’m lucky to be healthy. I would reccomend going to see it. Its only midly shocking, but very educational.

  13. Link exchange is nothing else except it is only placing the other person’s webpage link on your page at suitable place and
    other person will also do similar in support of you.

  15. My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net
    from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a variety of websites for about
    a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.
    I have heard very good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts
    into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices
