Medical Museion is a combined museum and research unit at the University of Copenhagen. The museum was founded on a private initiative in 1907 to mark the 50th anniversary of the Danish Medical Association with a public exhibition of historical medical artefacts. It remained a public museum until 1918, when it was taken over by the University.Today, we belong to the Department of Public Health, which in turn is part of the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences.

First time visiting a medical museum. It was very interesting seeing how different illnesses affect the human body. The museum itself is relatively small in size but it was great value for money (150dkk for 2 adults). Our tour guide was very knowledgable and had great English. Definitely worth a visit if you're looking for something a bit different -... More

This museum is full of unique interesting specimens that you wouldn't see in other cities! Tons of fascinating facts and a million things to learn here regarding medicine, medical history and biology but it is NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED! Very graphic and not suitable for children in my opinion. Not the biggest Museum so I think it's a bit... More

This place is great if you are interested in medical history. Boyfriend was a bit pale after looking at all those organs, bones and deformed fetuses. You can also see a video of a stomach bypass surgery. Also history of the building is interesting. A must see!

We visited the medical museum on a recent visit to Copenhagen. We took part in the free tour which was in english provided by one of the medical students that worked in the museum. The students working there were very friendly and helpful. The tour was very interesting and informative, it lasted about an hour. There were many exhibitions in... More

Fascinating for science lovers. Great place to go for an interesting hour as it's not that big. 50DKK entry, Open 12-4 Tuesday-Sunday with free English tour on Sunday at 1.30. Lots of it you will already know if you are into science/medicine and biology however the highlight was definitely the room of preserved body parts they have collected over the... More

We only visited this as we spotted it next door to the Design Museum. It was a really thoughtfully curated museum and opened my eyes to medical history in a way I've never experienced before. I felt the museum shared so much in a really accessible and sensitive way. Yes some of the exhibits were a bit shocking but they... More

This was a great visit, with a host of interesting things to look at. I took an English speaking tour and found it very easy to understand. The old lecture theatre and pharmacy were outstanding.

Museums talk a lot about articulating research ideas through the material of their collections, but it is exceptional to see this so clearly executed in practice as Medical Museion has accomplished with their Body Collected exhibition. Put blunty, this is a collection of body parts, ranging from aborted and still-born foetuses (including one still in utero) through pathological collections of... More

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
