Teachers and teacher trainees can visit the PLASTINARIUM free of charge before they visit the exhibition with their students. Free admission is granted upon presentation of proof at the ticket office (a valid school ID or written confirmation by the school is sufficient).

Plan your visit with children and young people
A visit enables the authentic study of the human body and thus offers great pedagogical benefit compared to a biology book or other teaching materials.

The following content is taught:

  • Exploring anatomy, system by system, from the musculoskeletal system to the nervous system.
  • Understanding the independent functions of individual systems and their interaction in the body.
  • The juxtaposition of healthy organs and exhibits with pathological changes, for example a healthy liver compared to a liver that is morbidly altered by cirrhosis, or a healthy lung next to a smoker’s lung.
  • The intention of the exhibition is to encourage visitors to look after their own bodies in a responsible way.
  • A variety of whole-body plastinates that provide a detailed view of muscles, bones, tendons, nerves, blood vessels and organs.
  • Exciting and amazing facts about the human body that enhance the learning effect.
  • Plastinates in real-life poses demonstrate how our bodies are structured and how the systems displayed interact in everyday activities.
