This is something different the city of Joburg has to offer and it is suitable for all ages. It is more beneficial to the youth though. If you're taking smaller kids (under 12s), get ready for tons of questions. Enjoyable

What a wonderful place in the middle of grotty Joburg! At the moment it is hosting the wonderful bodies that are plastersized! Great fun and not grotesque. This place is the most amazing 'museum' in Joburg!

We visited the Sci-Bono centre to view the Body Worlds exhibition that is currently there. The exhibition itself is fantastic and the centre is clean and in good condition, just have to drive through some dodgy areas of Joburg to get there and you do...More
