  • The exhibition is devoted to the sense of happiness and the physiology associated with it. the exhibition begins with the 6-th floor and descends. Each floor is dedicated to a different theme (muscle, brain, circulatory system, reproductive system, etc.). exhibition in English and Dutch.

  • 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!
  • Morbidly fascinating. I would recommend it to anyone in the area. Admission fees are a bit high at 20€ but it was worth it. I found it very interesting to learn about anatomy not in a 2D space of a textbook, but rather a real scale 3D model.
  • I went with a friend after closing for an special event, so I can't tell how it would be in normal hours. That's something to take in account to properly enjoy the exhibition. There is much to see, read and learn if you are really interested and that might be hard with a crowd around. The "happiness" theme turned out to be a nice angle for the exposition. About the price, I didn't pay the usual fare and we got drinks and snacks, otherwise I think it would have been a little on the expensive side. I would recommend to people interested on human anatomy or with some morbid fascination.
  • Amazing... I learnt so much... About human body, life, and happiness. I spent 2 hours here and really enjoy every bits of the exhibits. Thank you for the wonderful experience and for the people who donated their bodies. Might be gruesome for some people, but really informative and inspiring.
