A Radboud Gesture

Since time immemorial, there has been a fascination for the healthy body, the diseased body and related death. Many visitors will behold the beauty of what lies under the skin with great wonder and admiration during a visit to the museum. The Museum of Anatomy and Pathology at Radboud university medical center in Nijmegen was founded by the first professor of anatomy Professor Dr. Huub Lammers and his right-hand man Jan Fellinger in 1967. The earliest preparations date from the early 1950s. The museum is the most recent anatomical museum in the Netherlands and is unique in that it actively expands its collections. The museum is seen as one of the jewels of the Radboud campus due to its beautiful collections, the artistic and refined preparation technique and the aesthetically and didactically designed exhibits. There are three different collections: anatomy, pathology and teratology. These collections consist almost entirely of human specimens that have been processed with the utmost care and prepared for permanent exhibition. Let yourself be amazed during a visit to the museum. Free guided tours start every hour on the hour.
