A unique museum with lots of information of the human body and mind. We enjoyed it but it was a little overcrowded. We probably would visit again but would book online again as full ticket prices are expensive.

This was simply amazing. Cannot recommend highly enough. Completely surreal. I leant so much and it was sad, fun and informative all rolled into one. You have to see it to believe it and all the interactive things were fab.

Dear donnalynno,

Wow, this is just an awesome review and we want to thank you for that! We are honestly glad to hear the visit to Body Worlds was so inspiring for you since that is one of the main goals of this exhibition. The visit to Body Worlds can definitely be an eye-opener since it shows in a unique way how our body really works and the direct impact and influence that happiness has on our health.

Once again, thank you for your lovely words and we sincerly hope to be able to welcome you back soon!

With kind regards,

I am a biologist so I am perhaps biased as to how interesting this was, but, it was so so interesting. So often in biology you are studying parts of the body removed from the rest of the body; this show helps you put together all those parts in context. This show had the additional benefit of exploring happiness with some really helpful information on how to live a happier life.

Dear Alex C,

Thank you for this great review and for rating us with the highest score possible! We are delighted to hear that this exhibition helped you to put together all the parts of the human body you had previously studied and added plenty of interesting information to all the knowledge you already had. It is also true that one fascinating fact is to see what stress and infatuation do with your body and discover the difference between happy and unhappy people. Happiness affects your health enormously: happy people live a few years longer than people who are unhappy.

Glad to know you had such an interesting experience, we hope to have you back on your next visit to Amsterdam!

With kind regards,
Body Worlds: The Happiness Project

It could be seen as a bit grotesque, but seeing how the body actually works and moves was very interesting. Not sure it is for young children though. Research it before you go. I could have spent hours here. Go early before large groups get there.
