This museum needs a serious makeover and upgrade. This was nothing more like an old oversize biology book for me. Depressing building and unimpressive. I fled disillusioned.

First of all, despite the name "Hygiene" in the museum name, the museum is actually more about human body than about hygiene. Aside from that, I think the museum is very thorough in explaining the human body in general. For example, it has numerous exhibits...More

The name of this museum is somewhat misleading as it is not really dedicated to hygiene but to health care, which I don't think are the same. It is similar to, but smaller and more to the point than, London's Wellcome Collection. The admission price...More

It was quite a struggle to find this museum. Not just us but also other people asking us the way. I loved the museum. BUT I can read the German. My friend rented the English audioguide but found that it was not informative enough. There...More

Situated around 15 minutes walk from Old Town this is housed in a fairly large building. The displays are broken down into various sections relating to living and dying, eating and drinking and movement plus a few others. There is also a children's section housed...More
