The basics

Visitors to the museum can trace 300 years of medical history from primitive early treatments and procedures through the evolution of modern medicine. Discover the vast collection of anatomical specimens; visit the anatomical theater, medical research laboratories, and dissecting room; and follow the stories of 10 different patients spanning three centuries. The accounts, including a complicated birth in the 18th century and a 21st-century patient with sepsis, provide fascinating insight into medical interventions over the years.

Rudolf Virchow’s anatomical collection

The museum’s exhibitions are based almost entirely on the personal collections of German pathologist Rudolf Virchow. Among the approximately 750 anatomical specimens on display are a collection of brains showing the various stages of tumors, a heart that has undergone a quadruple bypass operation, an iron lung, and a skull infected with syphilis. Many healthy organs are also displayed for comparison.
