    Great as a modern and interactive museum. Many interactive tools to learn better human anatomy and more, especially for kids

    Although I was initially skeptical whether my school English 15 years ago is sufficient, I was really excited after attending this great Museum. Everything in Spanish and slightly slimmed down in English. For me it was enough and I can only recommend it. Very great multimedia elements, much to the test itself... fun! Interesting not only for doctors and medical personnel. The foundation stones of Anatomy were laid here and are visiting more than value. Students should bring along your identity card, the age is not as attention (ID applies only up to the age of 26 for the discount).

    Beautiful Museum in the historic building of the Hospital of St Francis Hospital founded in 1416 and very advanced for its time. The Museum is interactive, interesting (both for newbies, whether for medical students) and a lot of fun also for children of school age. Easy to reach by tram being downtown. Combination tickets for family, staff very helpful and friendly and historical "characters" hidden behind a virtual doors and a "big man" which tells the story of medicine for children. Also equipped with changing table, baby bottle and baby nursing pillow. To see!
