  • Dialog in the Dark and Bodies Exhibit

    I doubt everyone will be interested in this, but I went to both of these on Saturday at Atlantic Station, and I have to say, it was about the coolest thing I've done in a while that doesn't have to do with cars. lol If you get a chance and have the time/money to do these, I highly recommend it while they're still here!

    Dialog in the Dark is a tour into what it would be like to be blind and how much your other senses are hightened when you can't see. This has to be one of the most intense things I've ever experienced. You are guided through the tour by a blind (vision impaired is the correct terminology now) person, you are even given a walking cane to use as an extension of your arms. They put you through some daily experiences that really show you how much you take seeing for granted.

    The Bodies Exhibit was really cool too if you're even remotely interested in finding out how intricate our bodies really are and what it looks like when each layer is peeled away and seperated. I think one of the coolest things there was seeing the circulatory system in it's whole without any muscle, bones, or other supporting matter in the way. Everything you see is real, there was nothing cast or fake. You even get to hold a brain if you so desire. This is nothing like what you saw in school or on TV, except for the Sliced Man, if you know who that is.

    Overall, definitely recommended for something that's out of the ordinary.

    If you don't mind me asking how much was the body exhibit?? I wanted to go last time it came though town but school was sucking my soul dry. haha

    Also thanks... I have wondered what the whole Dialog in the Dark thing was. Now I finally know.

      It's $25 each or you can buy the combo for $35. The combo was about $37 after taxes and ticket fees.

        That is not a bad price.

          How much time did you spend there? I'm trying to figure out if it could be a week night activity.

                I'm up for giving either of these a go. Although admittedly, seeing the dead bodies all chopped up freaks me out quite a bit.

                  I'm sure it could it be, may be a late-ish night though. We got there about 12:30 since our Dialog tour started at 1 (you're required to be there 30 minutes prior if you buy your tickets online which I highly recommend because the line to buy tickets was insane!) and we left about 4pm. Dialog takes about an hour to do and Bodies takes as long as you want since it's a self-guided tour. However, it was myself and my g/f's family, so a total of 5 people walking and reading. Yourself with maybe 1 other person would end up going faster.

                  :lol: I thought so too, but it turned out to be really cool.

                  They're really not "chopped up", it's actually still standing in full size, just with different layers or systems revealed. The only thing that was cut was the Sliced Man, which was basically a body cut in ~1/4" increments from top to bottom, with certain things cut from side to side. It basically gave you a real view of what an MRI sees.

                      i've been to bodies and yes it was very very very very weird but intresting at the same time. And my wife has been to dialog in the dark and she said it was kinda boring.

                        Steve and I saw the Bodies exhibit. We wanted to the the Dialog in the Dark combo, but it was sold out.

                        It was really neat! A tad short, but still very cool!

                        Eric, where did you get to hold the brain? We never got the chance to do that. :(

                          I got to hold a brain and a liver. :lol:

                          It was at the end, right where you exit the exhibit but before you enter the gift shop. They tell you about how they extract different parts and preserve them and what not. Pretty cool stuff too.
