Slavery or human cadavers? My husband and I were torn between the two for our May 17 road trip to southwest Ohio. Ultimately, "Bodies ... The Exhibition" won the coin toss over the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, so onward we went to the Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal, which is hosting the controversial exhibit through Sept. 1.
The exhibit has been around for more than two years, and is being held simultaneously in different places, including Las Vegas. Its purpose is to give the general public the opportunity to view the human body in its entirety, just like medical students have for years, in order to gain a better appreciation and understanding of just how amazing we physiologically are.
