The Medical History Museum of Berlin (Berliner Medizinhistorisches Museum) is operated by Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, one of the largest university hospitals in Europe. The museum is located on the grounds of the Charité in a building erected by Rudolf Virchow in 1899 to serve as his Pathological Museum.
The museum's permanent exhibition was opened in 2007. Visitors can tour through rooms exploring the achievements of Western medicine in the past three centuries, including an Anatomical Theatre, Pathologists' Dissecting Room, Laboratory, Clinic and Examination Room. Ten individual medical histories from three centuries are depicted in an historical patient's room. Many preserved medicinal preparations from Virchow's own collection are also integrated into the exhibition.  
Special exhibitions at Medical History Museum tackle unique aspects of medical science and history. The museum also sometimes plays host to contemporary art exhibitions in which medicine and art enter into a fruitful dialogue. The impressive "ruin" of the former lecture hall, which also belongs to the museum, often hosts lectures, discussion nights and conferences.

Closed due to extensive construction work until October 2021.

The permanent exhibition shows numerous pathological-anatomical specimens. These objects make a very strong impression, therefore young people under 16 years of age are permitted to the museum only when accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. School classes are permitted to the museum starting with 10th grade.

Due to the current developments in the Corona crisis, the Board of Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin has canceled all Charité events until July 20, 2020. To our regret, we cannot offer historical site tours. Further information is to be found on the museum's website.
