  • 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.
