Medical museum for kids

museion-annonceOur high season for visitors is week 42, when Danish school children have a week off. If the weather is bad, this is particularly good for our visitor statistics, so we are looking forward to some heavy autumn rain storms that will drive hundreds, nay thousands, of young visitors to our museum.

In week 42 we are open every day between 11am and 5pm. The 7-12 year old can attend special roundtrips in the museum at 11am to see how broken legs were treated in the “good old days”, what a dentist’s clinic looked like around the turn of the last century, etc. Our student docents will show skulls and bones and other body parts and tell somewhat uncanny stories about our bodies.

Grown-ups can attend special guided tours at 12.30, 1.30, 2.30 and 3.30pm. Take this opportunity to see Oldetopia before it closes.
