A very interesting and well done exhibition. The audio guide (EUR 3.50 per person) is definitely recommended. I learned so much more about the human body. The museum is spread over 6 floors, with each floor having a different focus.

Very interesting! Unfortunately, we hadn't booked a German audio guide, but that wasn't a problem with Google translator. I would definitely recommend!

Body Worlds is interesting, even for children. Biology differently. The canal cruise was nice. Good for children with a journey time of a good hour.

Very interesting and informative exhibition with about 20 life-size people and also many exhibits of body parts

Absolutely worthwhile exhibition. It's crazy how big or small some things are in the end.
