  • Small museum location, near Central Station (a 5 minute walk) and next to the Museum für Naturkunde, and of course the charity hospital. The first floor has an exhibition on forensic medicine, the next two are a permanent exhibition, one devoted to the pathophysiology and other medical equipment. I envy the Berlin medical students! Count €9 per adult.

  • The centerpiece of the Museum is a collection of historical and scientific, and so their meaning and purpose also most likely in a good guide opens. The collection is very graphic, what is sure hard bearable for many visitors. The current exhibition "Cut and stitch", however, provides a very real glimpse into the everyday violence crime. As already the exhibition "Tatort" several years ago, managed once again to recreate real-life situations and that is of course considerably more depressing than anything that introduces Prof. Börne on Sunday evening in the scene from Münster. So: make your own image of the violence happening in our daily lives go and himself.

  • Great special exhibition "Cut and stitch", many specimens and exhibits. Sometimes repeats itself. Understandable labels for non medical people.

  • Really great museum, not for the faint of heart though. Well worth the price (10 euro) for 2 hours inside.
  • Truly amazing museum if you are into medicine and/or life sciences!
  • One of the best museums in the world for medicine. A visit here is an educational experience one will remember for life.
  • Very impressive collection of medical exhibits paired with interesting facts about the hospitals of Berlin.
  • Exciting! Reminds me of the Anatomical Museum of the University of Basel.
