A Morbid Forensics Museum Hidden in Madrid

Lost in a corridor of the immense Faculty of Medicine building at the Complutense University in Madrid, there is a small museum that may be best avoided for those with more delicate sensibilities. Visiting this macabre museum can be, in a way, a somewhat horrifying experience to nonprofessionals.

Among the 1,500-odd pieces on display are deformed skulls of ancient cultures, severed heads from executions, dissected fetuses, uncorrupted children’s skeletons, diseased bones, and torture devices like the real garrote vil that killed the famous Madrid serial killer, “Jarabo.”
