Just a century ago death used to be a natural part of life but nowadays it is little understood and perceived as a distant phenomenon.

This exhibition aims to show death as a natural part of life not to be feared or mystified.

The exhibition explains how and why people die and clarifies what changes happen to our bodies after death and also points out the ethical side of treating the dead.

The topics of funerals, grief, remembering of the deceased are presented. Different specialists that study death, music or bugs, morticians, and people around us give their point of view.

You can listen to funeral music, try out our digital-autopsy table and see different items linked to death and grief.
