For those of us that are science geeks, this is a must see. Great explanations of how the body works, with cool animations, travel to the various floors, etc.. Following the tour, there are multiple floors of hands on displays that allow all ages to learn more. English text, tours are readily available. The architecture of the building is also... More

... And I disagree with some reviewers: this is jot only for children! I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The entrance fee (plus parking) leaves a dent in the wallet, but in the end I found it worth the money. Very interesting. Well organised (you book in advance, choose the time and then your walked through the human body in groups... More

This interactive museum about the human body close to Leiden is especially nice for children. Everything inside the body is well designed. You have to apply online to join the electronically guided tour. The museum is relatively expensive regarding the short tour (1 hour).

Corpus is right next to the Hilton Garden Inn Leiden. It is a journey through the 70 foot high 'man' that lasts about 50 minutes. Visitors are formed into small groups for the 'journey', part of which is self-guided using ear phones for the commentary and part is narrated by staff. The journey starts with the start of life, then... More

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.
