The Semmelweis museum is full of fascinating medical history exhibits dating from the prehistoric ages to the 20th century. The rooms are set out clearly in English and Hungarian and cleverly bring to life the various developments in medicine over the centuries. They have a room that represents Semmelweis's office back in the 1850s as well as some photos and... 更多
It is really interesting place for biologics, medics...and whose profession is near... I saw the development of medical tools and now I wonder how many people remained alive after surgery by many of those tools :-D Everything is OK there just one small minus-I found some things without any or English description.
I am a retired physician and on seeing the name of the museum, and knowing the history, was interested in going through the museum. However, on asking the person behind the counter if he spoke english, he went off on a rant, saying that this is Hungary and that here we only speak Hungerian and that he was not willing... 更多
Although there was a range of artifacts and interesting objects it lacked English explanations which is a shame for a museum in the capital city. There wasn't any museum publications to buy, not even a museum guide. Despite this we still enjoyed our visit. Good staff service.
This is a medical instruments museum dedicated to the local doctor who discovered the cause of the transmission of puerperal fever – the leading cause of death of mothers after childbirth – and how to prevent it. Individual exhibits are labelled in English. However, there is no explanation in English of what is going on in the history of medicine,... 更多

Early anatomical wax models many of which were given to the medical schools here. The list goes on and on. There are some helpful English labels but it... 更多
This is quite a small museum but it is crammed full of interesting artifacts set out in a logical chronological progression. The collection of early modern books pertaining to medicine were really wonderful. There was also some interesting maps. The later exhibits focus on different medical professions and notable practitioners. Most items include English descriptions. Whilst I love anatomy museums... 更多
I learned about Semmelweis in school and the role he played in identifying the cause of infection in women who had given birth in hospitals. When I saw this museum, I had to stop in ! The museum exceeded my expectations. It has some of Dr. Semmelweis' personal belongings in addition to other relics of medical history. The best part... 更多
The top floor is medical history with a small section on the man himself. I wouldn't bother with the downstairs section as it's temporary exhibitions and they're in Hungarian. Being both nurses we loved the medical equipment and the pharmacy, but it's quite a small museum. The price does reflect that though. I have to say though, the highlight of... 更多
