Read about the guided tours

The Classical
The Classical guided tour focuses on understandings of disease and the body from antiquity to now, from the four humours to bio-chemical reactions. The tour is for you if you are interested in a large overview of medical history and will bring you to many parts of the museum. Learn about surgery before the time of anaesthesia and antiseptics, enemas against melancholia and the ethical dilemmas behind collecting fetuses and DNA.

The Body Collected
This tour presents a large selection of human remains from the 18th century to now. The tour is for you if you are interested in human anatomy and ethical dilemmas in modern medicine. Hear how fetuses with malformations were collected in 19th-century maternity wards, how medico-legal experts collected murder victims and learn about the modern biobanks of the present day.

Mind the Gut
The tour shows how doctors, scientists, patients and artists have tried to study and treat the complex relationship between mind and gut. The tour is for you, with an interest in the newer research on bacterial cultures and conversations between art and science. Hear about a hunter with a hole in his stomach, about faecal transplantations through “crapsules” and the attempt to diagnose mice with anxiety.

Epidemics in Denmark
The tour looks at the Danish history of major disease outbreaks. The tour is suited to learn about the history of epidemics, about fighting disease on the individual and societal level and how past and present are connected. Hear how vaccinations took place in 18th-century Denmark, how the world’s first intensive care unit was established in Copenhagen and draw your own experience of Corona.
