RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) - Some skinless models interrupted a class at the Richmond Ballet in downtown Richmond to show off their form Tuesday.

The visit was arranged by the Science Museum of Virginia that's hosting a new exhibit called Body Worlds and the Brain.

"It's definitely a different experience for me. When I first found out about it at first I was wondering we're at the ballet, because we're almost demonic and they're so angelic so it's like a contrast but it's a lot of fun,” said Rachel Faulkner, one of the models.

The Body Worlds and the Brain exhibit, which has more than 150 preserved bodies for educational purposes, opens at the Science Museum this Friday and runs through September 23.
