  • Thoroughly enjoyed my visit - I would say that if you are not from a medical background and don't speak German you will probably have no idea what the specimens are as many of them had no English...  more »
  • Finally I could see the real iron lung! Pretty a lot to see! Good collections. A lot to read. Shame that the objects don’t have English descriptions  more »

  • Astounding collection of medical tools, as well as well written and in depth description of history side by side with extensive explanation of nearly every exhibited piece, organ or even reconstruction of historical treatment room are reasons by itself to visit this wonderful museum. And to top it off one of the kindest personal to guide you through, and care about your belongings while you are enjoying this pice of art. I strongly recommend visiting this place to anyone who pays visit to Berlin.
  • Very interesting, worth the visit especially for those with an interest in medicine, nursing and history. There are 3 levels of exhibitions so it may take some time to see everything (especially for those that like to read).
