Keywords:Medical Collection, Museological Conception and planes
AbstractThe Berlin Museum of Medical History at the Charité has been in existence since 1998. The institution aims to showcase medicine, yet it wants to show not only what medicine is but also and especially, how medicine came to be what it represents today. In its new permanent exhibition, opened on 25 October 2007, the museum takes a look at the development of medicine from a western, natural historical and scientific perspective over the last three centuries.
