Lonely Planet review

This museum traces the history of medicine from Greco-Roman times through medical tools, instruments and photographs; yet another antique pharmacy also makes an appearance. Ignác Semmelweis (1818–65), the ‘saviour of mothers’, who discovered the cause of puerperal (childbirth) fever, was born in this house and much is made of his life and works.
