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.
