Entry Ticket to MUSME: Museum of History of Medicine

    What to Expect
    The Museum is set up in the 15th century building that used to house Padua’s first hospital, built in 1414 by husband and wife Baldo Bonafari and Sibilia de Cetto: the Hospital of Saint Francis the Greater.
    Balancing the past and the future, MUSME revolutionizes the concept of scientific museum, combining History and Technology.
    Neither typical collection of relics, nor simple science centre, it merges and renovates different museum approaches and captivates everyone, by offering an exhibition itinerary fitting each visitor: from playful story-telling for the younger ones, to in-depth scientific learning for scholars and adults.
    MUSME places the human body at the centre of a scientific and historical itinerary, unfolding along three floors overlooking the road and the internal cloister. You will see medical instruments and both ancient and modern specimens, even some of anatomical pathology.
    Wonderful ancient volumes, usually inaccessible to the public, can be browsed virtually here. Multi-level games teach the correct anatomy of the human body and the medical terminology.

    Wow, what an unexpected delight. We were taken on a tour of the museum where some of the first surgery was performed. We even went into the "operating theatre" which was extremely.............small!! Great guided tour and always amazing to hear the history of medicine.
