Family activity

Kl. 18-20
In the Reception Room

At Medical Museion we literally have skeletons in our closets and, on Culture Night, children and their families can explore these objects together with us. Discover bones, skulls, and medical instruments. What is it? What was it used for? And did that really come from a human being?

Guided Tour: Sneak Peek of The Living Room

18:30-18:45 and 20.30-20.45
In The Living Room

What happens when a museum lets the objects, which whey are supposed to conserve and care for, decay? On Culture Night we invite the audience into The Living Room, an experiment that explores the life cycle of museum objects in the field between sound art, conservation, and philosophy.

Talk: The World is in You

19-19.15 and 22-22.15
In the Auditorium

The world has a great impact on the human body. Earth’s journey around the sun teaches your cells about circadian rhythms and trillions of microorganisms help your body to digest food. The exhibition The World is in You draws on biomedical research to explore how the world and body are intertwined. See the exhibition at Kunsthal Charlottenborg.

The exhibition Corona will also be history one day reflects on the current COVID-19 pandemic through historic epidemics. Curators Anne Bernth-Jensen and Bente Vinge will talk about objects that define the corona period – objects that now belong to the museum have become a part of pandemic history.

Talk: Body in Space – Space in Body

20-20.15 and 21.30-21.45
In the Auditorium

The human body is made of stardust dating back to the birth of the solar system, 4.6 billion years ago. Maybe this is why man has always wanted to go “back” to space? However, space travel is no easy feat. Hear curator Jacob Lillemose talk about the many difficult challenges we face leaving Earth.
