  • A trip to the human body. 5 floors of exhibition where you will come across various parts of the human body exposed. And with real models! The visit with audio guide is a good choice, then there is in Portuguese and Spanish and other languages (other than English) are incomplete, which I found a bit of neglect with visitors. But overall it's worth the visit.

  • This place is amazing. Don't be put off thinking it would be morbid, it's really not. It gives a fascinating insight into the human body. Made me find my love of science and human anatomy again. Price is a bargain in my opinion
  • wow is the only word that i can think of, gobsmacked is another. from the outset it was macabre and absolutely fascinating. real people, stripped of skin and, well, everything really, apart from bone and muscle. much was mentioned about healthy eating and what happens to the human body when it is abused. the whole layout is very thoughtfully done and designed with provoking deep thought firmly in the mind of the artist. i will definitely visit body worlds again if an opportunity arises. ever wondered what that muscle was that always 'plays up'? or that back ache that never goes away, or maybe the nerve that always seems to pinch? well you will literally find your answers here!
  • Well there's nothing better to bring things into perspective than a walk through a museum of skinless bodies! Really a must-see if in Amsterdam - it offers an experience that, while a little outdated in design, isn't something you're going to find anywhere else. As long as you have a strong stomach, check it out!
  • Literally the highlight of our trip to Amsterdam - this amazing museum has 6 floors of real human body samples with plenty of information (in both Dutch and English equally) and knowledge to be learned. Some areas are interactive (don't want to ruin anything) which are good for kids. If you're put off by the price but like science, namely biology, just remember that you can spend between 2 to 5 hours here like we did depending on how in depth you read the content - there's plenty available, so it's excellent value for money.
  • Incredible place! Wonderful exhibition, with lots of understandable information. Interesting to see the human anatomy so true to life (or death, excuse the pun). I would definitely recommend taking a visit here!
