BodyWorlds2 by anatomist Gunther von Hagens is on fascinating display at Boston’s Museum of Science through January 7, 2007. All the major systems of the human body–and those of some animals–are made visible through the plastination of donated cadavers. It’s an opportunity to have both philosophical and scientific discussions about the nature of human life. Along the way, a few smokers’ lungs or slices of skin cancer might help persuade your children to take good care of their own bodies.

Other current exhibits of von Hagens’ work appear in St. Paul and in Houston, both until September 4, 2006. An exhibit in Vancouver will begin September 15, 2006.
