Medical Museion’s collections have been stored in the buildings in Bredgade for almost 100 years, but dramatic cloudbursts and space deficiency in the convoluted historic houses mean that the collections cannot remain at their current location. Therefore, the owner of the museum, the University of Copenhagen, has launched a visionary project that will review, package and move roughly 125,000 different objects to a new up-to-date storage facility.
Historians and conservators carry out the project in a joint effort to upgrade digital information, take new object photos for the database, and ensure that everything is safe to transport to the new facilities. The collections consist of various objects from an X-ray bus, gene chips and blood samples, to different parts of human skeletons with traces of diseases.
