The bizarre "Body Worlds" exhibit continues its tour across the U.S. How old should kids be to see it?
It really doesn't get weirder than this. Body Worlds, an exhibit featuring dead bodies preserved in a process called plastination, has been seen by more than 25 million people around the globe. To date, over 800 people have signed up to be donors.
The question is: When is your child able to cope with such a morbid concept? (For that matter, when are you?)
On display are 200 human bodies, sliced and diced--reducing the human form to so much lunch meat.
Also, genitals are fully displayed, so not only are kids staring at naked bodies, they're examining naked dead bodies.
Most museums insist parents accompany kids if they're under 13, but they don't restrict children of any age. Would you take your child to a "Body Worlds" Exhibit?
