What people are saying about Body Worlds Amsterdam
I bought the pass thinking it was a good idea, and boy, it certainly was that. Being able to skip the HUGE queue at the Rijksmuseum made it all worth while on its own, but with the other museums and the transport too, it was good. Everyone spoke really good English, but the staff that explained it were really helpful too. The book you get with it took a little time to understand, but once I did, it proved much easier to understand than the other one I took - the Lonely Planet guide (althought that had other useful things in it as well). The only problem with the HollandPass book was that the attraction pages didn't say which sector the attraction was in, only the address. This meant you had to cross reference to another source to group the activities into a feasible day out. But a really good purchase - and it lasts not just for the one trip, so if we get a chance, we are going to go back and carry on with other parts of Holland.
Overall, a very useful pass. The only drawback was the time it took to wait in the queue at Skiphol Airport at the Travel desk (20 mins)as we had a taxi waiting for us over the road at the Hilton Hotel, so this made me very tense. The pass was useful for the first 24hrs on the tram and, as we had a pass for 2 venues, we used it for the Rjiksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum. We also got 10% off the entry into the Oudekerke, oldest church in Amsterdam. The best thing was we could go in the fast queues at the Art Galleries.
If you have never seen a Body Worlds exhibition before and don't want to get overwhelmed by the larger ones, this is a good exhibition for you to visit. Also, if you visit before 11 AM or after 16 PM, you could save yourself some money on the ticket prices. Note that I am not sure if the issue has now been resolved, but the ticket vouchers that I received did not include a QR code or barcode, which meant that we couldn't be let in. We had to e-mail the vouchers to Body Worlds, before being let in.
My friend and I made a last minute decision to visit the Body Worlds Amsterdam exhibition alongside The Happiness Project and we were so pleased we did! The information throughout was interesting and thought-provoking and I would definitely recommend to others. Also really liked that we were able to visit in the evening - we were there around 6.30pm, so had booked an off peak ticket online through GetYourGuide.
The idea itself is amazing. Very interesting and impressive how well all bodies are prepared. Bit pity is that they called it ' The Happiness Project' since it is hardly about Happiness. Just during a few moments it was the topic. I guess there is no need for such marketing campaign. Would be better to focus on body parts, such as lever, lungs, heart, etc...
