In order to visit this museum, you need to know it exists. Inside a building outside city center, you would never know it was there passing by. The museum is fairly cheap and the English audioguide is free with the price of admission. This is...More

A thorough and refreshing history of the subject. Come for the tactile models showing the internal placement of the coil, stay for the audio overview of colonialism’s malign influence on world medicine.

A small museum with only two rooms, but includes a lot of information about the history of contraception and abortions. I got a lot of new insights.

Two small rooms containing a lot of history and informative facts. The free audio is excellent. So often these subjects are presented from a sensational, religious or moral argument. The practicing doctor who created this museum simply presents the history, statistics and facts of the...More

Great idea for a museum. It's has two rooms; one for contraception and the other for abortion. Lots of information there, but a lot of stuff will be lost in translation if you aren't a German speaker. I got an audio guide in English which...More
