Kansas City, opinion, cocktails, snark.

Union Station working hard to strip death of any dignity whatsoever.

The ghoulish ‘Bodies Revealed’ exhibit opens this week at Union Station. Promoters tout the ‘educational value’ of the exhibit, but at $24 per ticket ($19 for children – BARGAIN!) it would appear that educational value is taking a backseat to raking in the cash. I like Union Station and I want to see it succeed but this particular exhibit is too much of sideshow for me to support.

  2. Actually, I learned a lot from the bodies exhibit. It was a rather intense experience, but I went int he middle of the day and was one of a small number of people there, so it didn’t have a sideshow atmosphere. The most disturbing part was not the exhibit itself, but the story behind how the bodies were obtained through rather elicit means. Being the kind of person who would donate my own body for such work, I thought it could have been great had the bodies come from such a gesture rather than pulled out of a Chinese prison. That aspect tainted the show.
