Wasn't sure what to expect and if we would like it but had a great time and learnt a lot while we were there. All the exhibits are well presented it's very impressive hard to believe they are real bodies. Loads to see covering a full anatomy of the human body from foetus to old age, also covers lifestyle choices like diet and smoking, a lot about happiness and mental well being and different cultures. Only downer you aren't allowed to take photos.

I was a bit worried that this would be a novelty without substance, but I absolutely loved it. It's all very tastefully done and incredibly interesting.

I learned quite a lot whilst I was there, it really was fascinating to see human anatomy this up close and personal. A must see! I'd avoid any mind altering substances before you go though!

Had been wanting to see this exhibition for some time, found this exhibition very interesting and made me think more about keeping healthy in relation to diet, exercise and lifestyle. Parts of it were rather grisly and not for the faint hearted.

Had a great time was very interesting definitely worth going to. Was amazing the way the bodies have been preserved and very insightful really wished I had now bought the book.
