Open Collection – Get Up Close with Medical History

Equipped with gloves, you'll have the opportunity to dive into the museum's treasure trove and touch the objects. Lift the lids of the cases and discover what lies within. How does a denture feel, and have you ever held a genuine skull? The event takes place on selected days from 1 to 3 PM.

Open Collection

Meet a Conservator
We open up the museum’s unique medical history collection on selected days from 1 to 3 PM. See the dates below. Here, you’ll meet a conservator who will guide you on how to handle the historical objects.

Creativity, Immersion, and Learning
In the Open Collection, you can borrow paper and pencil and immerse yourself in the details of the artifacts. This form of creative learning allows you to absorb information in a deeper way, making history come alive and present. What color is a bone, who used this denture, and how does a prosthesis work?
