Body Worlds Vital at Ky Science Center Review

My kiddos and I (along with my sister and her kids) went to the Body Worlds Vital exhibit and the Human Body IMAX movie at Kentucky Science Center this week.  I found it quite interesting, but not worth the price.  However, I do freely admit that I am very tight with my money.  My children weren’t really impressed, they are only 7 & 4.  While she did ask questions and actually look at the bodies, the 7 year old was rather unimpressed.  The 4 year old left before we were done to go play. 

The movie was a bit ‘old’ for the kids as well.  I knew the 4 year old would be lost, but thought he might actually learn something.  Instead he hid from the screen and fell asleep in the seat.  I grew a bit concerned when the movie began discussing puberty (a glossed over few minutes) and that sperm fertilizes the egg to make a baby.  Thankfully no mention was made as to how the sperm gets to the egg or where it came from.

What would have made the exhibit better is if they had ‘experts’ walking around to give information instead of having to read the sign for each one.  My daughter still had questions I could not answer and it would have been nice to have someone (with a clue about the human body) talk us through what we were seeing.

The bodies are real.  The males …um,… look like males.  I was informed at each male that, “This one’s a boy.” 

I thought Halloween was a kids’ holiday!?!

What happened to the days of rummaging through closets and dress-up clothes to determine what you were going to be for Halloween?  I have become increasingly aware of costumes following the trend of other clothes styles.  That’s the nicest I can put it.  What I really mean is that Adults, Teens and even Kids costumes are getting so revealing that I’m embarrassed for them!  My daughter is 7 and after attending a recent Halloween party I’m going to have to explain the word ‘sexy’ and discuss some of the ADULTS costumes.  I’ll admit I’m on the conservative side on clothing issues (and many others), but fish-net stockings with miniskirts or daisy dukes do not belong around children!

It just really saddens me when I see a mom dress inappropriately (by my strict standards) and see her daughter start to follow suit.
