Home / Explore / Things to Do / 7/26 Body Worlds: Anatomy of Happiness Evenings

Experience the North American Museum Debut!

Happiness has an impact on our mind and body, influencing our movements, perceptions, sensations, mood and more. Through dozens of human specimens called plastinates, explore how anatomy is involved in happiness and how positive or negative emotions can affect health. Discover the complexity, resilience and vulnerability of what lies beneath the skin.

BODY WORLDS: The Anatomy of Happiness was created by Gunther von Hagens' BODY WORLDS & Institute for Plastination based in Germany. They believe when people understand how the body works and how to make choices that have a positive impact on bodies, all who see a BODY WORLDS exhibition will be more likely to choose a healthy lifestyle.


The Science Museum is offering extended evening hours every Friday during the exhibition, from May 31-August 30. The Science Museum will stay open late, from 5-8 p.m., to allow guests more time to explore BODY WORLDS. Please note that all other exhibitions and areas of the Science Museum will be closed.

Evening admission is $10 per person. Discounts are available for teachers, military personnel and through the Museums for All program. Tickets purchased under these discounts must be purchased in person at Guest Services. Science Museum members receive unlimited free admission to the Science Museum and the touring exhibition.
