It's difficult to find. It's actually in the library building. There is no signs until you're climbed the stairs to the library. But it's worth the visite.

This place feels like it could be torn from the pages of a Dan Brown novel: you can practically sense the mediaeval surgeons chopping up the bodies with starch-collared students around.

Very simple exhibit that can be viewed quickly, but definitely worth the visit. Very austere. There are pamphlets provided in numerous languages that are very informative. The detail in the building and walls and carvings is breathtaking.

We visited this after seeing it on a TV programme and it's a winner for anyone interested in the history of medicine. However, little was explained and it did all look a bit dusty. A Renaissance anatomy theatre should be better displayed.

Walk up to the demonstration room of the University and see the original training ground for Doctors'. dissections were only done during the winter months with corpses coming from the hospital next door. Beautiful central marble slab and the professor sitting up high with a canopy supported by flayed figures, sadly this is a reproduction as the original was bombed in 1943 - but well restored.
