Very interesting and easy to see. All of that little, or big things, that we sometimes think about our body there are there to see. more »
Absolutely amazing place with a vast collection of body parts . Very well organised and explained. I would recommend to anyone that has some interest in medicine . more »
Quite diverse and interesting exhibition, some of which is interactive. Registrar was helpful and pleasant. Definitely could recommend to visit even if you cannot stomach exhibits from/of human bodies or parts of them, as there are artistic and historic installations as well, and they make up at least half of the museum.
Maybe not for those disturbed by macabre, but I LOVED this museum. I especially loved the “Mind the Gut” exhibit.
