Why should I visit the Corpus Leiden Museum?
Families will embark on a thrilling ‘journey’ as a red blood cell, take a breath in the lungs, jump on the tongue, walk through the ear, admire the brain and be generally amazed by the functions of the human body. You’ll have a newfound respect for your own body and for others’ bodies too.
These educational memories will last a lifetime and may even teach your kids how to look after their physical health and well-being. They’ll learn why lots of exercises is vital for human health and how responsible nutrition is another integral cog in the human machine.
