The BODY WORLDS Amsterdam exhibition takes you on a journey through the human body. It will teach you everything about human anatomy: the strength, defense mechanisms and vulnerabilities of the human body. Theme of the exhibition is ‘The Happiness Project’, it will take you on a quest to the anatomical effects of happiness. Is there a formula for happiness? What are the effects for our well being? What chemicals are involved? In the museum, you’ll find over 200 anatomical models, made out of real plastinated bodies. They will give you a unique insight into the effect of happiness is on the human body.
The BODY WORLDS Museum is an educational experience for both young and old, just like the Nemo Science Centre but on a different topic. Your kids will enjoy this Amsterdam museum to the fullest, unaware that they’re actually attending one of the most interesting biology lessons they’ll ever get. The project by Gunther Von Hagen, is unique in its kind. With the exhibitions held in Europe and America, already over 40 million people have visited the real-life anatomy lessons of German scientist Von Hagen. Explanation for this success is according to us the educative value of the exhibitions for kids and adults.
We definitely recommend BODY WORLDS Amsterdam to anyone who’s interested in anatomy and/or biology and looking for educative but fun experience. The museum is also popular among a lot of locals and receives loads of positive reviews online.
