This is an amazing exhibition of bodies that have been perfectly and respectfully preserved to provide us with an understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the body. Certainly well worth a visit.

Have visited many times and for many different occasions. It pulls it out the bag every time. Lots to do and see. Only downpoint is the price of the parking and it changes each time I visit a different event.
