Bodyworlds Portland Ends This Weekend, Show Open 24/7 in Final Days
If you’ve been in Portland for the last few months – and not living under a rock – you’ll have seen the ads for the Bodyworlds Portland exhibit at OMSI. The skinless bodies are everywhere – on buses, billboards, TV ads, newspapers – but after this weekend, they’ll be gone.
What? You still haven’t seen the show? Well, you’re apparently not alone. In order to satisfy last-minute demands, OMSI will be open round the clock from Friday, October 5 through Sunday, October 7. Yes, that’s right – OMSI will be open 24 hours a day for three days so the few remaining Portlanders who haven’t yet seen Bodyworlds can take a gander before the show leaves town.
You can still get tickets for the last few days of the Portland Bodyworlds exhibit, although OMSI recommends purchasing them at least 48 hours in advance. Tickets to Bodyworlds are “timed tickets,” in that you’re buying a specific entry time, not general admission. Visitors are also encouraged to arrive at least 30 minutes before the printed entry time.
