This quirky (and sometimes grisly) museum traces the history of medicine from Graeco-Roman times through medical tools, instruments and photographs; yet another antique pharmacy also makes an appearance. Featured are the life and works of Ignác Semmelweis (1818–65), the ‘saviour of mothers’, who discovered the cause of puerperal (childbirth) fever. He was born here.
