    In the fine former Academy of Surgery is lots of space for a comprehensive tour of matters medical. Psychiatry and many other branches of medicine past, and some current, are presented.

    A vast collection of artefacts relating to medical science history and tremendous developments over centuries is engagingly delivered.

    As an example, Junod's Boot is fascinating. In the 1890s it was used to treat psychological disorders, based on humoural theory of four humours in the body. Surprising that this late any credence was still being given to this ancient and superseded belief.

    It was interesting to learn that the great physicist and Nobel Laureate Niels Bohr lived in an apartment in the house for part of his childhood. His father was a physician and professor at the university.

    There is a grand portrait of Niel’s mother Ellen.

    Tremendously informative it has an unrivalled collection of specimens numbering in the multi-millions.

    In a fine exhibition space in the university campus four themed displays are to be enjoyed. Precious Things is superb.

    With some stunning specimens it was the highlight. Misty, the practically complete skeleton of a Diplodocus, has a fascinating back-story. In 2009 the famous paleontologist Raimund Albersdoerfer was at work in a fossil trove in Wyoming. He sent his two young sons off to see what they could discover.

    Astonishingly they unearthed a piece of what turned out to be the remains of a 17 meter dinosaur from about 150 million years ago.

    Reticulated pythons are shown and are impressive. Being the longest snake in the world they can extend to more than 6 meters.

    A couple of Aurochs are marvellous. Their size is imposing especially as they are considered the ancestor of modern day domesticated cattle.

    Polar bears have a special place here. Many of their skulls are to be seen as well as fine examples of the full majestic animal.

    In a fine purpose-build from the 1890s is housed an impressive display of crystals and minerals collected from around the world.

    Sparkles and colours are eye catching, as is the norm with similar everywhere.

    We are used to the idea that a museum is a place filled with material artifacts. How can something as ephemeral and intangible as happiness be put in a museum? Apparently, it is possible, as you can make sure by visiting the Happiness Museum in Copenhagen. Another discovery you will make is that happiness is well researched: the exposition is carefully curated by the Happiness Research Institute. Along the tour you'll find a lot of fascinating facts about happiness around the world, will participate in the research and contribute to the museum's exhibition. After the time spent there I felt really inspired. My happiness is in my hands!
