  • Fascinating and somewhat haunting (in a good way). Specimens are presented in really compelling ways, like showing the brain developing throughout gestation vs the adult brain and comparative anatomy with other species. I do wish they allowed photos of some areas (I appreciate the respect given to the dead, but it is also valuable to share knowledge). I also wish they had a catalog of what each item is (aside from just the Latin names on the labels). But overall one of the most interesting museums in the world really.
  • Absolutely interesting place! Exhibition is huge and diversed, descriptions explain value of each item and teach about human body and how our body can be f*cked up. I wound not recommend this place for sensitive people.
