The Anatomy Museum of the University of Campania Luigi Vanvitelli is part of the broader University Museum of Sciences and Arts. The entire museum system is full of fascinating historical and cultural treasures, though its anatomy section in particular is a trove of morbid curiosities, like human remains preserved in various substances.
Created at the end of the 18th century, the anatomy museum was reopened to the public only in recent years. It has sections dedicated to “normal” anatomy—think the type of material you’d expect to find in a biology class, like various scientific tools—and another specifically for anatomic pathology.
