Lonely Planet review
Housed in the Narrenturm (Fool’s Tower), which served as an insane asylum from 1784 to 1866, the Pathological Anatomy collection is not for the weak of heart. Filled with medical oddities and abnormalities preserved in jars of formaldehyde, plus the odd wax model with one grisly disease or another, the museum will take your breakfast to the edge.
Guided tours of the museum's highlights last 45 minutes. The Narrenturm itself dates from 1784 and is a delightfully circular, neoclassical design by the Franco-Austrian Isidore Canevale (1730–86).
