Museum guide "Bloodlore"


This museum guide introduces older adolescent visitors (15+) to medical science and helps them explore the Museum’s permanent exhibition. Through various stories and tasks related to the human circulatory system, visitors get a glimpse at how medical science develops our understanding of the human body and health.

Seven objects from the Museum’s permanent exhibition work as checkpoints on a self-paced visit to the Museum. “Bloodlore” briefly introduces the history of each object and its significance to medical science today, while various tasks and questions offer something to ponder after the visit as well. How does knowledge develop in medical science? What is the role of technology and thinking skills in this process? And how is medical science shaped by its ethical, political, and social context?

The guide is available at the Museum’s Information Desk.
