The primary goal of the BODY WORLDS creators is health education and teaching preventative health care to audiences of all ages. The exhibitions educate general members of the public about the inner workings of the human body and to show the effects that daily lifestyle choices have on our health. It is also presented in the hopes that it will stimulate curiosity about the science of anatomy and physiology.

The London exhibition is BODY WORLDS’ flagship venue, located in an iconic building in the heart of Central London. It is the largest, most visual and interactive exhibition BODY WORLDS has ever presented, with a unique permanent collection that is especially curated for London.

Anyone interested in learning what makes us human. Adults of all ages and children will find the exhibits fascinating. Given the nature of the BODY WORLDS exhibits, it is up to parents, guardians or school staff to decide whether BODY WORLDS is appropriate for the children in their care. 

The creators of BODY WORLDS believe that when people understand more about how their body works and how it can break down, they are more likely to choose healthy and sustainable lifestyles. We also hope it will inspire visitors to learn more about the life sciences. Knowledge about what the human body looks like and how it functions, is basic life science information that should be available to everyone. We will be actively reaching out to educators and medical professionals to ensure that they have the opportunity to experience the exhibition.
