Gothenburg Medical History Museum
A 200-year-old collection of medical paraphernalia in a historic house.
Founded in 1808 in a historic home donated to be first a hospital and then this museum, the Gothenburg Medical Museum is one of the oldest original medical museums in Europe.
The collection is comprised of a variety of medical equipment, instruments, photos, furniture and books dating from the 18th century forward. Rotating exhibits highlight both local history of Swedish medicine in Gothenburg as well as a general overview of medical advances over the centuries, with only a small part of the collection being on display at any one time.
The Medical History Museum belongs to the Sahlgrenska University Hospital.
Update as of August 2022: The museum is closed for renovations until 2023.
