Due to the record success of Bodies: The Exhibition, the Museum of Science and Industry has decided to keep the exhibit open an extra day. Bodies will have its final viewing in Tampa tonight at 6.
The popular exhibition is a traveling showcase featuring perfectly preserved human bodies and organs from China. The exhibit came under scrutiny last fall for its graphic nature but has seen a tremendous turnout from the community since opening in August 2005.
According to www.bodiestheexhibition.com, a record 400,000 people had visited the exhibit as of late March. Included in that number were more than 37,000 students from schools in and around Hillsborough County.
The exhibit was originally scheduled to open in Houston in April 2006, but due to a cancellation by the receiving museum, MOSI was granted an extension for the display.
According to MOSI’s Web site, the estimated wait time for visitors with pre-purchased tickets is between one and two hours. A single adult ticket is $29.95 and includes admission to the rest of the museum.

Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
