Gunther von Hagens' BODY WORLDS & The Cycle of Life is a wonderful opportunity for children—as well as for adults—to explore, discover and learn together.
The exhibition's goal is to create an educational experience for visitors of all ages to explore and witness the human body first hand. Allowing an in-depth exploration of the human body, BODY WORLDS presents anatomy in a way never experienced through conventional textbooks, educational tools and lessons.
Visitors who are familiar with the nature of the exhibits often have a more enjoyable and valuable educational experience. Please review the materials before deciding whether or not to bring your children/students to the exhibition.

Is this exhibition appropriate for children?
More than 36 million people, including young children, have viewed the BODY WORLDS exhibitions around the world. The exhibition is open to visitors of all ages. Like other museums that have hosted BODY WORLDS, we recommend that a parent or adult accompany children under 13, but there is no age requirement. Parents should know that some displays, such as an area on fetal development, are located in a separate room that can be bypassed if it is not appropriate; however, many of the plastinates do have visible genitals.
