Biomedicine in museums

Is snowstorm a good excuse for closing a medical museum?

By December 21, 2009No Comments

A laconic message from our colleagues at the NMHM in Washington, DC:

The Federal Government in DC is closed on December 21 due to the snowstorm, so the Medical Museum will [be] closed.

Here in Nopenhagen, it’s minus 2 centigrade, and the medical museum is closed for historical reasons (museums in the Nordic countries have always been closed on Mondays). Wouldn’t dream of closing down state institutions because of a few inches of snow.
