Museum of body parts which tourists can help create

Human and animal parts, plasticated and artfully arranged, are in a museum which also allows tourists to cut up parts of human cadavers. Yuck. Since the museum opened in 2004, it has revitalized the area bringing over38 million tourists to Body Worlds Museum in Germany. It looks cool, but I think letting tourists who have no clue what they are doing work on cadavers is not good. The commentator asks, is it ethical? That is an ethical question. Apparently it is in Germany. The bodies are self-donated. The IRB would have a field day with this... I'm so glad this is not a research proposal.
