Museum of Medical History Hamburg

The Medical History Museum of the Hamburg University Teaching Hospital houses a fascinating collection of historic medical instruments, microscopes, teaching models, and materials, wax moulages of various skin diseases, and other oddities.

Housed in the beautiful 1926 Fritz-Schumacher House on the campus of the teaching hospital, this museum tracks the evolution of modern medicine from the 19th century to the present day. Opened in 2010, the museum is part of the Institute for the History and Ethics of Medicine. Its permanent exhibition “The Birth of Modern Medicine,” explores the evolution of medical research, ethics, diagnostics, and therapeutic care through a variety of archival materials.
