Health – From head to toe
Get healthy – and stay that way! Walk in and around a giant body and uncover how medicines and medical technology keep us healthy. You can even slip into the role of doctor yourself!
Welcome to a journey of discovery from head to toe: in the Health exhibition, visitors can see and experience first-hand how medicine and medical technology have been helping us to get and stay healthy for centuries. Starting with the teeth, eyes and ears, the exhibition takes you through the cardiovascular system to the limbs and joints. The human being “lies” unmistakably at the centre of the exhibition: a gigantic body fills the room with a walk-in head, an airy rib cage, hand and leg silhouettes on the floor and a five-metre-high foot! The journey through our anatomy is flanked by thematic areas such as A Look at the Body, A Look inside the Body, Attack of the Germs and Surgical Procedures. The exhibition ends with a wonderful reconstruction of an 18th-century pharmacy at the far end of the room.
