Timed Tickets: Entry to BODY WORLDS is also available through a timed ticket system. Tickets are sold in 30-minute blocks for a specific date and time. Once purchased, visitors can exchange tickets for a different time and date, but only if they make the exchange prior to the date and time listed on the ticket. Visitors may enter the exhibition during the 30-minute window beginning at the time printed on their ticket. For example, if a visitor has a ticket date for June 16 at 3:30 p.m., they may enter the exhibit between 3:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. on June 16.
Plan Ahead: BODY WORLDS & The Story of the Heart at MOSI sells out often on the weekends, and it is common for the exhibition to get busier as the end of the run approaches. With this in mind, MOSI recommends pre-purchasing tickets. The exhibition MUST CLOSE on JUNE 28.
Plenty of Time: The average visitor dwell time is 90 minutes. However, visitors often take much longer to experience the entire exhibition. Audio guides tend to significantly increase he amount of time visitors spend in the exhibit. Please allow yourself ample tome to view BODY WORLDS. Audio guides are available at the exhibit entrance for $5 per adult and $3 per child (2-12).
