Bodies The Exhibition, Las Vegas

4.2
#1 of 8 in Childrens Museums in Nevada
View the human body in a completely different light at Bodies The Exhibition. Preserved human forms give unfettered access to the internal machinery of the body. The exhibits cover the skeletal system, musculature, the fetal cycle, and digestion. These body parts are preserved with a process perfected by Gunther von Hagens that replaces liquids and fats with acetone and plastic. The attraction is not to be confused with Body Worlds, a similar exhibit. It is so popular that copycats have appeared. Save money by purchasing a ticket online before your arrival. A visit to Bodies The Exhibition represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Las Vegas tour site to plot your vacation.

  • Was expecting something more, when the fare is as high as it is. But it was actually quite boring and so we cannot take pictures.

  • My wife walked in and then right out lol, it’s not for the faint of heart I guess. I love seeing how the body work from the inside out literally! You see the heart, lungs the whole body cut into 1 inc...  more »
  • It was neat to see the human body and learn some interesting facts. This is probably not a place for small children as the exhibits may be a little disturbing to some. The exhibit took about an hour  more »

  • The bodies exhibit is an interesting display of anatomy of how the body normally works vs when affected by an illness (cancer, disease, etc.). A great anatomy lesson for those looking to learn more about the human body and the different organ systems. The exhibit also is a big anti-smoking ad and even features a cigarette deposit box in the respiratory section encouraging smokers to quit. For those who are familiar with the subject or any medical background they may not find the exhibit as interesting. The information provided is very brief and honestly not a whole lot of content either... very brief. The whole exhibit takes about a hour or less just to get through which overall I didn't think it was worth it for $30 tickets. What I did love about the bodies exhibit was the display of real human bodies displaying the different organs. VERY COOL! And how some of the body parts are split into plane view so you can get an idea of how devices like magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) works and captures these images... very fascinating stuff! I also did appreciate the warning for the fetal development section (the most interesting section!) which can be a bit rough for some people to watch. Overall the exhibit is a good option for most age groups and very educational. If you're looking to burn a hour in the day the bodies exhibit can be an option.
  • Let me start by saying this is definitely a one of a kind experience, and I'm glad I saw it. However, this particular exhibit seemed a little too small to warrant a $35 ticket. I hate Vegas and was there for a wedding so I didn't have a lot of options except gambling or seeing a show, neither of which I was really interested in. I missed the exhibit when I was visiting Boston and thought, why not. I'm not sure if this particular installation is permanent but the space seemed like an escape room in the way that everything seemed a little temporarily put together. The actual content was impressive, but if you can score some sort of promo code, coupon or discount, that would make it a little more even in my opinion. But in Vegas, breakfast is like $30 so......
  • Been to a few of these exhibits. This was by far the most expensive one and the smallest one I've seen. I took my time going through the exhibit and it still took less than a hour, which was disappointing. The only highlight for me that I didn't get at the other exhibits I've been to was the chance to hold a human brain in my hands.... although she wouldn't let me get a picture of myself with it. It is expensive, but on the plus side its probably the quietest place on the Vegas strip so its good if you just need a break from drunk people.
  • Really great exhibit, very interesting and informative. There are genitalia on display so don't recommend taking kids... unless you're okay with them seeing that type of thing. It was really cool though! Sorry wasn't allowed to take pictures.
  • I came here, on a field trip with my child's class. I found it extremely interesting as well as educational. The children, found it interesting as well. The price, is a bit steep, butbi suppose it's what you'd expect from a Casino. There was a bit of walking. There's displays, along with reading involved. There's employees that walk around with you and inform you of what you're looking at. The staff was nice and had patience with all the children. I've been back several times before and totally enjoyed it, each and every time.
