When was the last time you had a really good look at yourself? Amsterdam's own BODY WORLDS peels back the layers to offer a fascinating glimpse into the inner workings of real human bodies to ask the most important question of all – what makes us happy. With over 200 perfectly preserved and cleverly dissected bodies, you'll discover the complexity and beauty of our inner workings in a perfect day of anatomical discovery.
Gunther von Hagen's incredible plastination processes have revolutionized the ways in which we understand the human boy, allowing them to be preserved, dissected and displayed like never before. Now you can see a naked skeleton taking an afternoon stroll, or stare at the uncovered human nervous system floating in space like an eerie web.
But there's more to BODY WORLDS than some scientific rubbernecking. The permanent exhibition goes in-depth (literally!) to look at what makes us happy and how happiness affects our physical and mental health. It's a science lesson with a twist, mixing philosophy and physiology to spectacularly entertaining effect.
So, whether you're morbidly curious or just plain morbid, BODY WORLDS is a thrillingly visceral journey through human anatomy, right in the heart of Amsterdam!
