Thought it'd be great for kids but not so much fun for a grown-up person like me who had learned most of the things they were explaining at school, and the experience was not amazing either

A great experience that takes very complex topics and makes them easy to understand in bite size chunks. There is a combination of a guided tour followed by leisurely walk around time to enjoy more interactive elements. Great fun had by the whole family. Note: this is a day out for kids of 6 years and older. The establishment will... More

A wonderful exhibit for children - my kids 7&10 loved every minute, from knee to brain. Lots of small surprises and a wealth of knowledge, and we all loved it. Also took the quiz booklet at the entrance which helped us focus them through the second part.

The first part of the visit is a guided tour through the human body, pretty interesting. It is also interesting for children. The second part is an exhibition from which I would expect little more. But overall a nice visit for 1.5-2 hours.

Compare with similar scientific museums in the Netherlands, like Naturalis in Leiden or Nemo in Amsterdam, Corpus looks really unimpressive. Its main exposition is neither informative nor engaging and the secondary exposition is really a shame - it is composed from old and often broken stands, too many of which are provided by various sponsors. Definitely not recommended.

Very interesting way of showing how the human body works. You're taking on a journey into the human body explaining how the major parts work without being lost in too much detail. This way not only adults can enjoy this museum, but children from an age of 6 too. Below that age it's difficult to comprehend what's being told and... More

The journey through the human body – the first part – is interesting but the second part – the expo after the tour – is a shameless promo for fundraisers. Our daughter liked it but we expected a bit more.

extremely educational visit through the human body its a journey that makes you understand how the body works that would be understood by 9 years onwards as adults we were impressed found it on a wet day cost quite a bit to get in aprox £40.00 worth getting the headphones for the commentary cafe quite reasonable
