About the Body

The Body Museum was founded in 2019 under the direction of the Khalifa University Advisory board as a part of the newly formed College of Medicine and Health Sciences (CMHS). The CMHS is the first medical school in the capital city of Abu Dhabi. The first medical museum opens at the capital’s first medical school, part of the nation’s top ranked university.

In keeping with its tradition of delivering world-class education and transforming the region through discovery and research, the UAE’s top ranked university has opened the country’s first medical school and museum. The Body Museum is a not-for-profit museum aimed at inspiring visitors and residents of the UAE to adopt a healthy lifestyle and consider studying medicine and health sciences. Open to the public, the Museum is the perfect addition to Khalifa University, which is committed to advancing knowledge for the betterment of humanity.

The Body Museum will showcase exhibits that highlight the Middle East’s contributions to medicine throughout history, as well as other informative and inspirational exhibits. The Body Museum is delighted to bring BODY WORLDS to the UAE and Middle East in order to launch the landmark undertaking and maximize the impact of their purpose – to inspire and educate the public about health and medicine.
