Everything you need to know before visiting BODY WORLDS VITAL
Anyone who wants to take a journey through the human body to discover the special, genius and aesthetic characteristics of the human body. BODY WORLDS is engaging and educational for both lay and medical professionals.
More than 40 million people, including young children, have visited the BODY WORLDS exhibitions worldwide. Those wishing to visit BODY WORLDS with a (school) child can download the educational guides here.
BODY WORLDS Vital will be on display in the historic wards of Site Old Saint John from March 17 through November 5, 2023 and will be open every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Last tickets at the box office will be sold at 5 p.m.
You can reach BODY WORLDS Vital through two entrances of Site Oud Sint-Jan: via Mariastraat 38 along the large gate if you are on foot or via Zonnekemeers where you can park in our parking lot.
We recommend you allow about an hour and a half for your visit. The time required depends on how much time you want to spend on the individual specimens and whether you want to read all the information available.
At the entrance to the museum and throughout the building you will encounter several staircases. BODY WORLDS VITAL is accessible to visitors in wheelchairs and those using walkers and mobility scooters. At the museum box office, we will let you know where the elevator is located. A small part of the exhibition is located on the second floor, and unfortunately this section is not wheelchair accessible.
