Discount to BODIES Exhibit Extended

TCC employees have another opportunity to save some money at the national exhibit, “BODIES…The Exhibition” on display in Dallas through April.

Located in West End Market Place, 603 Munger Ave., the exhibit features actual human specimens.TCC employees can save 20 percent on tickets. The coupon, good for six adult tickets, can be printed more than once.

Tickets for adults are $22 weekdays and $24 weekends and holidays; for seniors over 60, $18 weekdays and $20 weekends and holidays; and for children ages three to 12, $14 weekdays and $16 weekends and holidays.

Nearly 15 million visitors have viewed the show that features more than 250 real human 3-dimensional specimens consisting of whole-bodies and individual organs. Exhibit promoters invite visitors to “take the opportunity to peer inside yourself, to better understand how your elaborate and fascinating body works, and how you can become a more informed participant in your own health care.”

The exhibit is said to help visitors relate to everyday activities by showing bodies displayed in athletic poses. Additionally, it shows damage caused to organs by abuse. For example, a healthy lung is displayed next to a black lung ravaged by smoking.
