A few "plastinated" corpses as yet another Reason to visit Chicago Museums:
`Body' to pull 2 all-nighters: Exhibit to stay open for marathon weekend:
”Looking at cadavers in the wee hours of the morning might not seem like everybody's idea of a fun time, but the Museum of Science and Industry believes thousands will pay for that privilege over Labor Day weekend.
The museum announced Monday it will keep the hall housing the "Body Worlds" exhibit open around the clock for the three final days of the exhibit, which has drawn sellout crowds to view a collection of "plastinated" corpses.
Since Feb. 4, more than 700,000 visitors have been through Body Worlds, making it the most successful temporary exhibit at the museum since 850,000 paid to see recovered artifacts from the sunken ocean liner Titanic in 2000."
