Body Worlds, Amsterdam

At Body Worlds, explore exhibits of real specimens of human bodies. Anatomically positioned in space, the presentations reveal the complexity, resilience, and vulnerability of the body. You will see translucent body slices, organs, and plastinates--remains that have been preserved and kept in positions that reflect daily activities, including playing the saxophone, riding a horse, and dancing. Since their first appearance in 1995, these controversial expositions have attracted 40 million visitors worldwide. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Amsterdam trip simple and quick.

  • I really enjoyed this exhibition. I'm quite confident that even those without much interest in medical matters will thoroughly enjoy a visit here. All age groups are catered for. It's an educational and fun outing for the entire family. All the exhibits are very tastefully arranged, are so interesting and there is so much to learn. What made it especially enjoyable was that the staff were all very kind and that the entire exhibition was visitor-focused. They focused on how to enhance your experience in even small ways and that is something that I appreciated.
  • Fantastic and​ amazing place to visit and enjoy the great experience with very well preserved human bodies and organs for demonstration. This place is very well organized and designed as well as illustrated by the donated human bodies which show many ways of life including harmful effects of alcohol consumption and tobacco use, cancer and the beautiful blood vessels dissecting techniques. They show various systems of human including nervous system, cardiovascular system, etc. Very easy to understand with the hilarious illustrations and descriptions. PS Dear Body Worlds staff, We tried everything inside including body scan, swinging on a swing like that beautiful lady demonstration, mood recognition etc. Many thanks for your hospitality and warm welcome. So much appreciated, fun and enjoy ourselves. Hope we can be there again.
  • Absolutely fantastic museum, definitely worth a visit. This place has tons of fantastic informed and takes you on a structured journey through anatomy. The exhibits a incredibly well presented and preserved and the interactive exhibits area lot of fun. Probably my favourite museum in Amsterdam!
  • Absolutely great! You don't see real bodies every day. I recommend buying tickets online since they are cheaper and they let you enter the museum faster (in my case, zero queue) and sometimes there are some deals. In my case we also had a body scan included. There was also the happiness experience, which to be fair is not that great.
  • If you love museums and love the human body this is the perfect place for you! The way the exhibit runs is that on each level you have a different part of the human body, you have your muscles then the next your skeleton and it just dives into so much detail that it’s almost too much to take in! BUT it’s amazing, the way they preserve these bodies is crazy and all for research and our entertainment. The human body is a crazy thing.
