The exhibit really is emotional. These are unclaimed bodies from China. It is obvious they are Chinese, from their characteristics. How sad to imagine that someone could die and go unclaimed. That was extremely emotional. The exhibit texts were superbly and artistically written. They struck a balance between being simple to understand yet poetic and meaningful. I learned so much from this exhibit. Probably much more than any other.

My family of 4, 2 adults and 2 children ages 10 and 6, went to both Bally's Body Exhibit and Luxor Bodies.

The cost for Bally's is $28 for adults and $18 for children.   The cost for Luxor is $35 for adults and $27 for children.

Both are an at your own pace exhibit.  Both had what you would expect; organs on display, full bodies with skim removed showing the internal workings of the body, muscles, bone, and different organ systems.  Ballys had more full bodies and gave a better presentation.  I was surprised that the full bodies were not protected behind glass and could easily be touched, although there is obviously a no touching policy. 

Ballys did not prohibit photos while the Luxor did.  So all inclided photos in this review are from the Ballys exhibit only. 

We used the Power Pass to attend both exhibits.  While the exhibits had small differences, I would only pay for one if wanting to attend.  Although, the Luxor exhibit did have a more in-depth display showing the brain and spinal chord with the nerve endings, where Ballys just showed the brain and spinal chord, the Ballys exhibit was cheaper in price and seemed to have more displays.  It took us about 30 minutes to go through Luxor and about 45 minutes through Ballys. 

If you have time and can attend both with little to no extra cost, I would say they are both worth a visit.  However, if you can only attend one exhibit, I recommend Ballys.

Educational experience and artistically presented. Its an amazing process to get these body specimens to where they are. Beats 3D videos as these are actual body parts that are displayed. Its really about the same as the Luxoe Bodies exhibir. Only difference is the number of displays, mayne Luxor had a few more. Real Bodies allows you to take photos though while Luxor did not. Also, if you are a smoker you get a chance to see a stobacco-damaged lung and they hope to get you to quit after that.

If you've been to a Body Worlds exhibit, you might not think this is worth it. If you have not, I think this would be great way to kill 40 minutes. It is extremely hard to create exhibits like this so the creators did a great job. It is rather small and the signage isn't the best. You really gotta know what you're looking at. Bring a med school student with you!

Our teen is considering a career in the medical field so we weren’t surprised that this was the activity she picked. We spent a fair amount of time reading through each exhibit.
There was some significant emotion displayed by others during our time there. My teen, who is very practical and matter of fact, found that very odd.
The preservation technique and view of the bodies is fascinating. While I don’t know if I would do it again, this was worth the time.

As a medical professional, I truly enjoyed being able to see the intricate workings of our inner beings, and review many of the systems and how they interact with each other. The pieces were very detailed, with a reasonable explanation in layman’s terms that anyone could understand. I went through with my best friend who is also in the medical field, albeit a different profession, and it helped both of us understand interdisciplinary care better as well. I loved the opportunity to experience this exhibit.

This is not for the faint of heart as it displays preserved bodies and organs to look at. The display is educational and explains how different body parts and muscles work; there are also sections showing different organs (including diseased organs). You are allowed to take pictures here if you wish. This is very similar to Bodies in Luxor - there is no need to visit both as they both offer a similar experience but I enjoyed this one slightly more due to the different poses of the bodies and the ability to take pictures.

I have to say that this exhibit was very well done and educational. It took a "creepier" type of approach whereas the Bodies Exhibit at The Luxor took a very educational approach. While both exhibits were outstanding, my husband and I actually preferred this one. Both were similar in the displays and information, but this one just captured my attention more. I loved the first room with the Halloween type feel and the creepy candle-lit hallway with quotes about death. The ossuary was amazing - things that the exhibit at the Luxor did not offer. Don't come here expecting a show - come expecting to think. A great stop - so glad we did both, but if I had to choose, I'd come here over the one at the Luxor.

The idea of going to a museum to look at dead bodies was not exactly our idea of a good time, but our friends talked us into spending the dough. It was very interesting and they show a great deal about the make up of your anatomy. You see what is under your skin and inside your organs. They show different organs in a state of disease as well as healthy ones.

Interesting and informational. Try it once for sure.

This is a truly unique exhibit that accurately demonstrates the anatomy of our physical structures. From muscle, to bone, to each and every organ, blood vessels, and all set out in display cases and tasteful and respectful poses. I took my 10 year old daughter to the exhibit, because she is interested in becoming a physician. It is divided up in to several sections: repair, disease, love, life, death, new beginnings. We spent 1.5 hours taking our time to read each specimen and learn about the different parts of the body. All the systems we on display, which was fascinating - especially the digestive system. The lighting was also tastefully done. The one slightly creepy exhibit was the skin, but again, tastefully displayed behind a full curtain - the exhibit gave you the choice, the option to view it. Pictures and video were allowed at this Exhibit. Very appropriate for tweens or anyone interested in human anatomy. Well worth it for those interested in medicine and wanting to learn something new.
