  • Very interesting and easy to see. All of that little, or big things, that we sometimes think about our body there are there to see.

  • This is a very good medical museum with preserved body parts so this is not a museum for people that are squeamish. The deformaties have taught medical students for years and the old auditorium is...

  • This was probably one of my favourite things to see in Copenhagen! Really informative and detailed medical science. They had a temporary exhibition on Covid-19 which gave a bit more background how it all started and what steps have been taken here locally. Note: There is an expo of Cadavers so make sure that you have a stomach for it.
  • Really interesting place. Building have a lot history to. People of musseum is really nice people
  • It was nice. It had very good ideas. It could be much more interesting if exhibits have written stories, maybe some cool medical facts. I loved the 'Mind the gut' part. It could also be better if there is a gift shop, so many cool things could be sold there.
  • Quite interesting but there better places in Kopenhagen 😬 I think for people working in the medical field it’s worth a visit!
  • Good on the Corona exhibits, the rest were a bit tame, we want more grotesques!
