The Medical History Museum at the University of Copenhagen has recently been incorporated into the Institute of Public Health, and a new Department of History of Medicine for research, teaching and museum activities has been established. The Medical History Museum consists of public exhibitions about Danish medicine, pharmacy, odontology, radiology, osteology and folk medicine.
The Medical History Museum at the University of Copenhagen, 18th century to present day
Approximately 80,000 artifacts, and also a large collection of paintings, drawings and photographs, a library with a special rare book collection, and an archive.
The Medical History Museum was created in 1907; in 1947 the collections were moved to the building of the former Royal Academy of Surgery, a late 18th century palace in downtown Copenhagen.
The collections comprise around 80,000 items from the 18th century to the present, including a large microscope collection, a comprehensive collection of radiological instruments, a collection of pharmacies, a rich collection of surgical instruments, some 30,000 odontological items, the Saxtorphian collection of gynecology, obstetrics and teratology, and collections of nephrology, electromedicine, osteo-aracheology, ophthalmology, anaesthesiology, and physiology.
