BODY WORLDS: The Happiness Project

BODY WORLDS Amsterdam is a fascinating exhibition about the human body. Go on a journey through your own anatomy. With more than 200 anatomical specimens of real human bodies, the exhibition reveals the complexity, resilience, and vulnerability of the body. The bodies you’ll see are plastinated, this is an invention of Dr. Gunther von Hagens. This way you can see the function of organs but also have a close look at for example diseases.

An educational attraction in the city center

The exhibition focuses primarily on the effect of happiness on the human body. Do you live longer if you're happier? What are the effects of smoking on your lungs? What happens if you have a knee replacement? All these questions will be answered. Learn how your body functions from a unique perspective. The exhibition is in walking distance of Amsterdam Central Station and in the city center of Amsterdam.

New: including InBody scan at BODY WORLDS

At BODY WORLDS Amsterdam you can now do the InBody health check. By knowing your body composition you can see what your body is made of, including fat, protein, minerals and water. This way you won’t only know how much you weigh, but also what that weight is made of. So an InBody scan is much more accurate than for instance calculating your BMI
