Explore the human body through in-depth physiology, various cultures and emotion thanks to the 20 preserved human bodies on display. With more than 200 anatomical specimens, you are sure to find yourself pondering three key questions: What are we made of? Where do we come from? And most perplexingly, why are we here?
Pushing boundaries, this exhibition has been seen by millions of people and blends the worlds of art and science whilst serving as a museum of self and humanity. The themes in this exhibition mean that parental guidance is suggested. Tickets start at £8 for children and £12.95 for adults.
