The Houston Health Museum is about as close as you can get to living out a Magic School Bus fantasy (namely the book in which Ms. Frizzle's trusty bus is ingested by an unsuspecting elementary schooler).

Visitors to the museum, which is part of the Texas Medical Center, can walk through a giant model of the human body, witness real organ dissections and see what it's like to be a mini-med student.

Too old to bank on a field trip getting you there? Grown-ups are welcome, too.
