The museum is open again since March 8!
The museum in Heidelberg will continue to be open for you daily from 10am-6pm until Sunday 11.4.2021.
From 12.4.2021, the museum will be open exclusively on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays until further notice.
Tickets already purchased for the days the museum is closed will remain valid and can be easily redeemed on the extended weekends. Please check here for possible changes to opening hours prior to your visit.
We ask for your understanding for the current circumstances!
The number of visitors per hour is limited to 60 people. Tickets for specific time slots are available in advance online at reservix.de.
NOTE: The time window chosen when booking tickets only determines the admission time! During this time window should enter the exhibition. Of course, you can stay in the exhibition as long as you want. If one does not come within his booked time window, the ticket does not expire, but one must expect waiting times, because in the worst case the next time window is completely booked!
Due to the personalized ticket purchase and the associated documentation of contact details, any contact tracking is guaranteed.
While observing hygiene and spacing rules, visitors can experience fascinating glimpses inside the human body.
We are very much looking forward to welcoming you back to the museum!
Whether it's great love, a carefree life or true friendship...we encounter happiness in various ways, but still never quite by accident.
When do we feel happiness? What happens to our body? Why can't we keep it forever? Plastinator Dr. Gunther von Hagens and curator Dr. Angelina Whalley pursue these and other questions in the newly designed BODY WORLDS museum in Heidelberg.
The permanent exhibition is not only devoted to human anatomy, its organ functions and questions about health, but also the Anatomy of Happiness.
Around 200 unique exhibits and accompanying interactive stations, where YOU can get on track to your happiness, reveal the wonderful complexity of your inner body and will inspire your sensibility to your own body and happiness.
Only with valid verification: Students under 30, seniors 65+, apprentices 18+, disabled persons.
Children under 7 years, teachers and student teachers, companions of disabled persons (B), body donors of the Institute for Plastination.
