It was great! There are original human remains prepared long long time ago, so the whole room has a unique, antique feeling. There are very scary foetal disorders and different kinds of diseases can be learned as medical students could learn them decades ago. The...More

The idea of this ‘exhibition’ is very interesting although the outcome I think does not look very real. We went to the one in Copenhagen before and that was truly amazing with the same theme. After that this was a bit disappointing.

A must see! The guide was a doctor so very interesting and complete with a common language for no-doctor. You have to see it!

A fascinating collection of human organs well preserved. Great for any medics but some aspects are distressing.
