If you wish to explore some off-beat tourist attractions during your trip to Amsterdam, BODY WORLDS: The Happiness Project is the ideal destination for you. Embark on a fascinating voyage through the human body at BODY WORLDS Amsterdam, which houses real human bodies that have been plastinated and put on display for curious visitors. The 200 unique plastinates of BODY WORLDS teach you all there is to know about human anatomy and bring the focus on how health affects our happiness and vice versa.

Stroll through the seven levels of the iconic permanent exhibition and examine how our changing moods and stress levels affect our health, and in turn our happiness with the Europe travel packages. The exhibits show the human body in a never-seen-before avatar and are an exciting way to experience our biology lessons coming to life. While many similar exhibitions can be visited in different locations across the globe, the Amsterdam exhibition was curated by the pioneer of the plastination technique and is thus the best among them all.

The BODY WORLDS exhibition goes beyond a simple exploration of plastinated human bodies and provides free in-body scans to visitors where they can see what’s happening under their skin. While kids may find BODY WORLDS fascinating, parental discretion is advised for bringing them along.
