A very atmospheric collection including cycloptic babies, a narwhal horn, preserved tattoos and siamese twins. This collection is incredibly old and the largest...More

I don't know of any other museum that offers this experience. Fascinating to say the least, located in side a hospital/medical school, offering free admission. Seeing these preserved anomalies left me awe, unlike anything else I have seen. Short train ride from Amsterdam. Round Trip...More
