This exposition is not for the weakhearted although it's interesting to see human bodies from the inside under the skin surface. Excellent for students.

Didn't know what to expect and it was absolutely brilliant. If you get a chance you must see, as words don't describe how fantastic it is

We visited Body Worlds in Brugge last summer. It was quite amazing how much detail is preserved. There is a screened area with sexual content and was full of students for some reason. However I would not have wanted to miss the experience.

I visited this exhibition with a friend doctor. He told me there was a tremendous lack of good information, Everybody stares at the bodies with knowing what they're really see.

This is the most wonderful exhibition. Sometimes shocking in its presentation- for those who might struggle with graphic material, this is not for you! It is a stripped back anatomical wonder. You get to see the human body in 3D at a basic neurological, muscular,...More
