Full description
Explore how happiness influences the health of the human body, and discover answers to other mysteries of human life at Amsterdam’s Body Worlds: The Happiness Project.

This fascinating new exhibition by Dr. Gunther von Hagens features more than 200 anatomical specimens of authentic human bodies, all utilized to demonstrate the complexity, resilience, and vulnerability of the human form.

A visit to the exhibition is suitable for adults and children, although the interactive show also features an adults-only exhibition in the basement.

Over 40 million people from around the world have visited Body Worlds, which explores through science how happiness can affect both your body and soul.

Next on the program you’ll enjoy an hour-long cruise on the UNESCO-listed canal district of Amsterdam, with the opportunity to take in many of the historic sights of the city center.

Feast your eyes on the elegant merchant houses that date back to the Dutch Golden Age, the stunning gables, beautiful churches, the iconic Magere Brug (Skinny Bridge) and many other top attractions.

During the cruise you can listen to recorded audio commentary in your choice of 16 languages. The boat tour offers frequent departures throughout the day, 7 days a week!

Highly Recommended

With the Getyourguide ticket you can get to the exhibition without having to queue. In advance you have to exchange the voucher at a tourist information center 100 m away, which worked without any problems. The exhibition is spread over 6 floors and covers all areas of the body (cardiology, neurology ...). I really liked it (W18). As for the boat tour, everything went smoothly. However, this was very similar to the Hop on Hop off Tour (provider of the boat tour: Lovers Cruise), so I was a bit bored. The price was cheaper than on site (36 euros).
