Body Worlds Amsterdam will take you on a fascinating journey through the human body. The exhibition displays real plastinated bodies, giving you a unique peek into our anatomy and how our bodies work.
The Body Worlds Amsterdam exhibitions have undergone significant changes and taken on different incarnations throughout the years. From the effects of health, sports and diet to the anatomy of animals, Body Worlds Amsterdam has been reinventing itself over and over again and educating people in novel ways since its conception. The exhibitions are the creation of Dr. Gunther von Hagens, who invented the process of plastination in the University of Heidelberg in 1977. The original exhibitions have been the subject of imitation by countless copycats, but they remain unmatched in terms of quality and innovation.
The current theme in Amsterdam is named The Happiness Project and focuses on the effects of happiness on our well-being. This exhibit has more than 200 real anatomical models on display, which will give you a greater insight on how our mood can affect our health. Discover the secrets of the body and learn about how it functions from a unique perspective. Body Worlds Amsterdam is an essential educational attraction and an unforgettable experience. The exhibition is within walking distance from Central Station, on the lively street Damrak.
Open 09:00 to 22:00 on public holidays and during school holidays. Last entrance one hour before closing.
