anatomical theatre

theatre of wonder

Six centuries of science in six minutes, in the Theatrum Anatomicum of the Boerhaave Museum in Leiden. The old anatomical theatre comes to life and the audience is initiated in the secrets of science. Research into these secrets was inspired by curiosity, not by facts. For a while, people even thought that they were on the brink of knowing everything there was to know. 

But the more we learn and discover, the more we realise how much there is that we do not know yet. Every time we delve a little deeper, we discover new secrets. A showcase of curiosities, transparent screens and a spectacular, immersive show on the philosophy of science. For children from the age of eight.
