Quite standard exhibitions, all kind of body parts and organs, different pathologies and some old medical equipment and surgery kits. Interesting if you are interested in medicine. Could use some modern, more interactive exhibitions.

We found this absolutely fascinating. Gave a really good history of healthcare in Germany and highlighted key developments. If you don’t speak German they have an English translation for the exhibitions which can be a little difficult to follow at times. They have an amazing...More

Having been to Berlin on a few occasions, we decided to go for some of the more non-touristy attractions. I saw some of the museum photos online and was quite curious, so we made a point of coming to the medical history museum in Berlin....More

This was a very interesting place to visit, slightly morbid because of Virchow's jar collection with diseases and deformities; but an introduction to the relevance of Virchow's extraordinary work.

Got us totally by surprise. We went inside, not knowing what to expect. Once you enter your first thought is "ok this is going to be lame at best". But then, you get to the floor that showcases canned and preserved organs, limbs and even...More

This museum tries to cover the entire history of medicine but devotes too little time to each aspect. For example, Paul Ehrlich, who worked in Berlin and discovered the very first cure for a disease, is given just one small glass cabinet. Lots of topics...More

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The
