Being an obstetrician I went mainly to see the amazing part of clay figures of different fetal positions in the womb and the teaching instruments used to teach doctors how to deliver. The figures are amazingly realistic. I loved this museum and if you’re a doctor you should visit. It has other parts that for me were less attractive

While the Museo is rather small, the exhibits give you a nice overview of the early medical studies of the human body. The other artifacts on display are things explorers brought back from their journies.

Unsurprisingly, the oldest university in Europe has a fine collection of historical items in a historic building. Particularly interesting to medical, nautical or cartography enthusiasts. You also get something of the university area around. The library and old operating theatre are also remarkable.

Wonderful museum in the heart of the University District! 5€ for adults over 26, 3€ for adults under 26. Great variety of displays spanning natural history, art, anatomy, military and map history. Personal highlight was the obstetrics room- odd on the face of it but absolutely fascinating about how midwifery was developed! Wax models showing layered breakdown of muscles also amazing. The first few rooms have incredible painted ceilings and walls!
