  • Very nice exhibit that exposes the human anatomy in ways you probably haven't seen before. It takes you through the brain, nervous system, muscles, bones (skeleton), digestive system, reproduction and other cool stuff. Most of the displays are donations from deceased humans, so be ready for some life like displays. I would highly recommend visiting the place if you have a few hours to spare, I really think the price justifies the exhibit, and you can use many hours in there if you like.
  • Not bad, price is a little high (16 to 20 euros for a medium sized scientific museum. You may also touch real human body organs under assistance while wearing gloves! A must see place but it worths 10 euros or less.
  • It is worth to do research regarding human body and triggers of happiness. It gives people to have educational knowledge regarding each part of body. Also, it presents execising brings happiness to people so that it will help human to understand mental process will significantly effect a process of body of each part.
  • Nice little place with good exhibition. Don't expect too much if you're too familiar to human anatomy. This place is good for general public.
  • Fun for the layperson but don't take your medical student boyfriend here. He will cringe at most of the explanations and displays, which are apparently quite basic and not all 100% medically accurate. Also, fewer plastinated bodies than I remember from when I saw the Bodies exhibition in San Juan a few years ago.
