Guided tours for Higher Education

Look inside the body, get close to living bacteria, and hear about history’s most important medical discoveries and technological inventions.

A guided tour at the Medical Museum gives a general insight into the history of medicine.

Beginning in the auditorium where earlier times surgeons were trained, the tour guide takes the pupils through exhibitions on health and diseases throughout time.

For instance, how was diseases understood before the discovery of bacteria? How has technology and scientific discoveries moved the boundaries for treatment, and how has the body been explored throughout history?

Choose between three different tours

THE CLASSICAL focus on body perceptions and understandings of disease from antiquity to genetics, from body fluids to chemical reactions.

THE BODY COLLECTED presents a large selection of historical collections of human remains from the 18th century to now.
