We were provided with complimentary tickets from Real Bodies. All opinions are my own.
When I told our kids that we were going to Real Bodies at Bally's they had mixed reactions. They seemed both interested and a little grossed out at the same time. I had seen advertisements for similar exhibits at other science museums, but had never been.
I am not sure what they were trying to accomplish by making this skeleton the first thing you see, but it definitely piqued our interest. Maybe it is a warning that if you cannot handle looking at this display, this museum is not for you!
The human body is so amazingly complex, yet most of the time we take it for granted. This exhibit explores the various systems of the body, including the skeletal, muscular, circulatory, digestive, nervous and respiratory systems.
I liked how there were random factoids posted throughout the museum. For instance, did you know that children grow faster in spring? There was another parent there that was teaching her child extra facts about everything they saw. Science was never my strong suit, so we just stuck to reading the informational cards.
There was also a section that was cordoned off that showed fetuses at various stages of fetal development. We chose to view it, and it was probably the most fascinating part of the exhibit for me. The kids could not believe that they were ever that tiny!
