Gesundheit – Von Kopf bis Fuß

In the organizer's words:

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), health is a "state of complete physical, mental and social well-being". This means that even a wheelchair user is considered healthy despite their limited mobility if they have no other complaints. In contrast, people who suffer from depression, for example, may be physically intact but not healthy. The options available today are many and varied. This makes it all the more important to choose the right treatment. Because every person is unique - this applies to their personality as well as their health.

In the Health exhibition, visitors can see and experience how pharmacy and medical technology have been helping us to become and stay healthy for centuries. Starting with the areas of teeth, eyes and ears, the exhibition moves on to the cardiovascular system, limbs and joints. The focus is - or to be more precise: lies - unmistakably on the human being: a gigantic body fills the room with a walk-in head, an airy ribcage frame, with hand and leg silhouettes on the floor and a 5 m high foot. The journey through anatomy is flanked by the areas of looking into the body (with X-rays & co.), attacking germs (with bacteria and viruses), human surgery including the operating table, looking at the body, which shows how different people look, and finally leads into pharmacy with the historic pharmacy.

Live every day. New every day. For individual visitors and small groups of up to five people, guided tours, demonstrations, science shows and hands-on programs in various exhibitions take place daily, free of charge and without registration. The current daily program is published every day at around 9:20 a.m. on the website and in the Deutsches Museum app.
