Guided tours for education groups

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 Museion gives an unusual perspective on the history of medicine.

Beginning in our anatomical theatre auditorium where surgeons learned the art of dissection, the tour guide takes you through exhibitions exploring health and diseases past and present.

Learn more about how people understood their bodies and diseases before the discovery of germs. Explore how technology and innovation have revolutionized the way we care for our bodies in sickness and health. Discover the work of contemporary scientists and how they are changing what it means to be human.

Choose between three different tours

THE CLASSIC focuses on understandings of disease and the body from antiquity to now, from the four humours to bio-chemical reactions.

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