My wife just graduated from P.T school, and this is her graduation present.... the whole trip. So, on day one, I had decided to go see Body World, as kind of a nod to her science studies, and weird love of cadavers and art (...More

Such a great exhibition, never gets old. This is my third time visiting (each time in a different country), but I still found it very interesting and informative

This is one of the most interesting and educational exhibits that I have visited. Not morbid or horrifying at all. Gives you a real appreciation of both the fragility and strength of the human body. Not to be missed

Very educational. I thought my son would be disgusted but I was wrong. It is very interesting how they were able to plasterize the remains of those volunteered body. It did kind of boring for me because I already have an idea of where the...More

This display is one of three in the Discovery venue. Totally worth it, might rival the Mütter in being thought provoking and informative. If preserved human bodies don't bother you, you totally should go and see this.

This exhibit is a great introduction into anatomy and physiology. Unfortunately, this show is closing in September to continue its tour. The exhibit is half the size of what the original production is in Amsterdam, and the same cost. For anyone looking to learn about...More

It goes without saying that this is not a place for the faint-hearted or the easily grossed-out: the plastinated (not "plasticated" as some people say) bodies are very graphic and show every vein, muscle and organ in your body. If you can get past that,...More

We enjoyed our visit to Body World. It is an awe inspiring experience and is informative. It is clearly laid out and not too busy. You could actually take your time. This was also a nice escape from the hustle and bustle. Look for coupons...More

This was as dipicted by the pictures in their ads, so no surprises. The displays were artfully created and not gorey at all. I don't think this would be appropriate for youngsters under 10 or 12. Allow over an hour to see everything. The venue...More

I don't think any human can fully comprehend the details of a human body in one hour or less as you walk through this exhibition. This was incredible. Amazing!
