A scientific voyage of discovery about our bodies and how they work
Ever wondered how sports, diet, and even your mood affect your body? Come and find out at BODY WORLDS Amsterdam: the Happiness Project. This unique exhibition takes you on a fascinating journey through the human body.
BODY WORLDS Amsterdam will give you a newfound respect for your anatomy and how your body works beneath the skin. What do your bones and muscles do when you run? Just how many blood vessels do you have? How does disease or smoking affect your organs? Discover all this and more. This must-see exhibition features 200 real anatomical models. They have undergone plastination, a meticulous, scientific technique perfected by BODY WORLDS that preserves all the muscles and organs perfectly. Sound gruesome? Over 40 million people and counting have visited BODY WORLDS globally. After the initial surprise, visitors find it educational, fascinating and fun.
The plastinated bodies are entirely dry and odorless. There’s even an amazing dignity to the silent figures arranged in athletic poses. The exhibition will help you learn about human anatomy in ways previously reserved for medical professionals. You will emerge at the end with new respect for your body and all it does for you! BODY WORLDS Amsterdam is subtitled The Happiness Project. It makes us more aware of how our bodies work. Maybe even more importantly, it can make us feel more positive about our bodies. So take the Happiness Quiz, try out the swing, and learn about laughter yoga during your visit.
The exhibition is located just five minutes’ walk from Central Station. Why not make the most of this special offer by exploring some of the city’s other fantastic attractions? The royal palace, famous canals, fascinating museums, and some of Amsterdam’s best shopping are just steps away.
