Near the city of Leiden, a reddish-brown giant sits alongside the motorway. The enormous body is attached to a building. This is CORPUS: an educational attraction where you can see what your body looks like on the inside and how it works. You will have a great experience learning more about your own body. You enter the giant body and make a 'journey through the human body. CORPUS is for children from 6 years of age, the whole family and everyone else who is excited to learn more about the human body. Experience the spectacular 'journey through the human body' yourself!
From the knee to the brain
In CORPUS you will experience a spectacular 'journey through the human body' in 55 minutes! The escalator will take you to the knee, where the 'journey' starts, and you will end in the brain. You will make the 'journey' accompanied by an audio tour (available in Dutch, English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Russian and Chinese). Take a dizzying 'journey' as a red blood cell in the 5D Heart Theatre, learn more about the process of breathing, jump on the tongue, take a stroll through the ear and be surprised by your own brain, while you marvel at the ingenuity of your body. You will experience the 'journey' with 16 people, but due to the corona measures, that number has now been adjusted.
Interactive part - test yourself!
The 'journey' will end after 55 minutes. But that does not mean your visit to CORPUS will be over. You will probably still have questions about everything you have just heard and seen. Especially for this purpose, we have 'my CORPUS', the interactive section. Here you can find a wealth of information about the human body! There are special exhibits and games, and you can also do the fun and educational scavenger hunt here. Everything in 'my CORPUS' is related to the core beliefs of CORPUS: plenty of exercise, responsible eating and mental health. In short: healthy living! You can stay in this section for as long as you wish. An average visit to CORPUS lasts 2.5 hours.
