Very interesting and extremely well executed exhibition. However I did not find the very last exhibition very respectful to the donors and quite confronting (you will know what I am talking about if you visit). Otherwise, we loved it!

Having been to a Body Worlds exhibition in London some years ago we decided to visit The Happiness Project Amsterdam. Situated only a short walk from Central Station and a 1 minute walk from Dam Square at Damrak 66 it is conveniently located and very...More

I honestly didn't know what to really expect from this museum but it was a great experience: I'd say the overall context is quite scientific, neither too playful or too serious and seeing the human body and how all its parts interact with one another...More

Heard many things about the exhibition so gave it a try. The bodies on display are amazing and I really liked the exhibits that displayed the effects of disease on the body - a really unique insight! The theme was good and it flowed throughout...More

This place is pretty strange but very interesting. There are six floors of interesting information about how the body works and looks from the inside. Seems a little to focused on the male body, but otherwise an interesting almost "amsterdamish" look at inside the body.

Excellent exhibition. Puts biology into real 3D understanding. Good for students studying medicine as well as the general public who are interested in how the body works. Saw the initial exhibition in London 9 years ago and still found it fascinating with new exhibition subjects.

This is a very wild experience. You get to see parts of the human body and their workings. I would add this exhibit could be larger for the fee paid for entry.

This museum has got my "wow". It was not my favourite, but things here are well conserved and very informative!

This museum is not only fascinating with the real bodies used to educate, but there is the underlying theme, The Happiness Project, that offers inspiring quotes and educational tidbits that appeal to the mind and brain... particularly those parts of the brain that make you...More

This is rather special. Forget about the "inside-out" animation movie. This is where you really get a peak into the inside of the human body. You feel like a medicine-student or something, as you wander around the bigger or smaller parts om the human body...More

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

At 6-10 years old I'd have been bored after the first few minuets to be honest. A little older and I would have found it interesting.

Hi. From what I remember you are not allowed to take photographs. If you are a professional you can apply in advance for permission. See their website.
