Medizin- & Pharmaziehistorische Sammlung

(Museum of Medical & Pharmaceutical History)

The collection

The collection provides exciting insights into pharmaceutical history over the past few centuries and offers visitors the chance to experience medical research and treatment methods of the past at first hand. Among the exhibits are a large number of historic instruments and pieces of equipment, many of which originate from Kiel and Schleswig-Holstein. More than 500 pathological and forensic specimens offer a perspective on the history of medical training at Kiel University.

Highlights of the collection

Visitors are invited to visit the doctor’s office dating from the mid-20th century, which is fully fitted with a treatment room, x-ray and laboratory.

Another impressive and detailed reconstruction here is the material and poison chamber from the St. Jakobi pharmacy in Lübeck, with its associated drug chamber and laboratory.
