Opens in 2024

We’re cooking at Medical Museion: cooking up a new exhibition about margarine, science, health and a battle over the Danish dinner table. It is set to open in March 2024.

Below the pearly, dull surface of margarine lurks compelling stories of war, globalization, deceased whales, angry butter farmers, trans-fatty acids, processed foods, and lives saved.

The exhibition illustrates how the choices we make about our diet, our understanding of how blood vessels function, and the statistics of human health have been intertwined in Danish and international history.
