To start with we were hesitant to go to this attraction but with the reviews already given we decided to give it a go What a truly amazing attraction Went to the Amsterdam dungeons earlier and though that was very disappointing Would definitely recommend Body Worlds experience - if you are mildly squimish then don't worry it is all done...

So interesting to see the intricate details of the human body. The displays are fascinating and the captions are very informative. This is an experience I don't know of elsewhere in the world. Can see all the parts of the human body and compare to diseased parts. The interactive activities are also fun and informative. Well worth a visit.

When and where else could you possibly visit and observe real human beings in this way? It's remarkable and truly amazing to see the insides of bodies which have been preserved. Have an open mind and accept that these donors have done this for the right reason, to educate us and see it for real. When my kids are old... More

Didn't know what to expect but it wasn't eerie. It was actually quite fascinating and gives you a real incite into the workings of our bodies....

Amazing experience to see the human body up close and personal like this, crazy knowing the bodies and the body parts are actually real! A lot of respect for the donors and their families. Love how the exhibition is set out and there's a surprise on each floor. Only downside was HAVING to pay €2 for a locker upon entry... More

I made the decision to visit this place when I learned that it was an exhibition of work by Gunther Von Hagens. I did an A-level in art that focused on his creepy but amazing work and a small part of me that I am sure my art teacher is proud of felt a kind of weird loyalty to the... More

As a biology student I was always fascinated by the work of Gunther Von Hagen so made sure I visited this museum when in Amsterdam. There were some interesting parts to it, but nothing most people don't know already I would have thought, and probably not worth the entry fee really. Also the theme of "happiness" and how it affects... More

This is an amazing attraction and certainly needs to be visited. I went with a group of friends of which we are all health care professionals. The museum and the displays was extremely enjoyable and was one of our favourite things to do in Amsterdam. The display was a gentle reminder to us all that happiness and love for our... More

Body Worlds museum, is located on one of the main roads in Amsterdam so it's easy to get too! I would definitely recommend going as the things you see inside, you'll never really get to see again! The museum has about 5-6 different floors dedicated to different parts of the human body, and all the things you see are real... More

Really interesting and amazing to see. A little creepy but great none the less. Very informative and really makes you think. Took photos of the smokers lungs to scare some work colleagues. Good idea to focus on didn't areas of the body and different diseases and body parts/anatomy and such. Glad we had prepaid for fast track tickets. It is... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
