  • I was lucky enough to visit this museum with my girlfriend who is a doctor (who was a student of the current curator of the Museum) and that got me from "Cicero", so I got to appreciate and understand it to the Max. It really is a small masterpiece, both as it is set up and maintained in the appearance and organization, but especially for the material on display. We understand perfectly well that those who have made this museum she loved and believed in what he was doing. To see absolutely.

  • Very interesting Museum, well done and full of prepared! The teche and preparations (deliberately left ' ancient ') you are ruining (formalin is dry and the champions of ruin), also there are lights inside the shrines, and then you see just some samples. There are many digital media (video and audio) that enrich your visit. It is worth supplementing visiting with the other 2 museums (forensic anthropology and fruit) with business card 10 euro.

  • Not a very big museum, but very intricate models and well preserved and presented pieces. Definitely, worth it as part of the three museum pass for 10€  more »

  • Museum you might not like, recommended especially for fans of Anatomy and history of science. This small museum, three rooms in total, has a dense collection of artifacts. This is all that was used between late 1700 and early 1900 to study anatomy. The collection ranges from wax models to human body parts preserved in liquid or dry preparation. It is interesting to one side to get a better understanding of the human body, remembering the lessons of Anatomy of the College, on the other, to see how he taught Anatomy in the past. One of the most impressive a collection of 800 brains stored ashore, reproductions of human fetuses at various stages of life and flayed in the human body. You can see in about 30 minutes if you take a quick look, but if you want to deepen some aspects of the anatomy you might spend a few hours. The collection displays the objects as they were presented in the past, in display cases poorly lit, overcrowded with little captions. However, some educational panels very well get that help those interested to study aspects of anatomy. Not quite suitable for people sensible.

  • The Museum has a really great potential but want to leave all the "pieces" in the cases they had in the 800 I think it was a mistake, that's because so you prevent not just to see some things. For example, fetuses are at the bottom of the bottom shelf virtually in the dark so impossible to look decently. Also the glass is very reflective and this prevents us from seeing fine details of some pieces. Despite the three stars I would highly recommend it to anyone interested

  • Museum left some all abandonment. Little lighting and many vials without liquid and then the samples in alcohol deteriorated. Little information other than a simple brochure. Acceptable only because free admission on Wednesdays.

  • impressive, 800 brains in formalin ... some pieces really significant (a human model of 800 in paper mache really mirevole). a little poor from the point of view.
