  • Really enjoyed this museum and the forensics exhibition was an added bonus. Very comfortable with toilets on every floor and even a place to hang your coat. Shame photos aren't allowed. Some fascinati...  more »
  • The Museum will be a wonderful surprise for those who "in the subject"-doctors, students, nurses. A very special Museum. The keyword is "special". Be ready, that will see exhibits not conducive to digestion. But I, as a health professional with years of experience, is not threatened. On the contrary, felt, once again, a student in the classroom of the Institute. Many replicas of various diseases, a lot of "drugs in the banks," a lot of old equipment. By the way, it is impossible to photograph. Was very touched when I saw the layout of the House of intenesivnoj therapy-everything works-monitor, ventilator, Prism (24-hour hemodialysis), various dispensers, Arterial Line etc.. Precisely exactly as we do in the hospital only 10 years ago. If you "in the subject", be sure to visit this museum. Give yourself an hour of nostalgia for the past.

  • Regardless of the valuable and exciting permanent exhibition the current special exhibition "Blow - and stab wounds" really deserves huge praise. Real crime scene analyses the visitors illustrates the work of the judicial police is as complex and difficult. Methods of forensic science are very interesting and understandable (z.Bsp ballistics, post-mortem CT technology, forensics, DNA analysis...) shows up and exciting findings presented with good technical presentation. I spent just under 2.5 enthralling hours alone on the floor of this exhibition...

  • 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.
