8_2005_do_not_smoke.jpgTo drum up one last batch of publicity for Body Worlds, The Museum of Science and Industry will keep the exhibit open for 59 and a half straight hours this, its closing, weekend. The exhibit will open Saturday morning at 9:30 and stay open until 9:00 Monday night before moving on to Philadelphia. And also, starting today, the admission price for the exhibit is reduced from $21 to $16 for adults, $11 to $9 for children and $17 to $15 for seniors and college students.

The museum Web site recommends that you buy the tickets online. As of very early Tuesday morning, there are plenty of tickets available for the overnight showings. A museum spokeswoman told the Sun-Times that over 700,000 people have viewed the exhibition in the seven months since it opened.
