Is the Body Worlds exhibition appropriate for children?
More than 34 million people, including young children, have viewed the BODY WORLDS exhibitions around the world. BODY WORLDS 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 on www.bodyworlds.com before deciding whether or not to bring your children/students to the exhibition. It is important to note that the exhibition includes both male and female full-body plastinates with exposed genital organs.
We recommend the BODY WORLDS exhibits for school groups in Grades 5 and up.

Why do I need to purchase tickets for a specific time?
Advance purchase is recommended due to high demand for the exhibition. When you purchase your tickets, you will be asked to choose a date and time you would like to see the exhibition. For example, if you purchase tickets for October 23, 2012 at 10:00 a.m., you will enter between 10:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. This half-hour window allows us to manage the number of people in the exhibition at any given time to ensure all guests have a smooth experience.
No reservations online or by phone are permitted with ticket vouchers.
How long should I expect to wait in line?
Guests may begin lining up for the exhibition 10 minutes prior to their ticketed time. It takes approximately 30 minutes to admit all ticket-holders for one timeslot when we are at full capacity. On some weekends and holidays the experience may be longer.
Can I enter and exit the exhibition more than once with my ticket?
No re-entries are allowed. Tickets are for one entry per person only. Used tickets will show as such in our system to prevent re-entry, so a guest should be certain to purchase tickets from an official outlet.
