“Fun, interesting and educative”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

The exposition serious information about the body with fun and nice things. For me that makes it easier to understand and to reflect on my own life. I realy think it is a fun and educative exposition for both grown ups and children and I'll come back in the summer with my 12 year old nephew.

“Weird And Wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

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.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

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!

“Bit weird!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

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.
