Press Information on the Deutsches Hygiene-Museum

Deutsches Hygiene-Museum – The Museum of Man

Since reconceptualization in 1991, the Deutsches Hygiene-Museum has been understood as a universal museum of man. It is thus neither a science center nor a special museum devoted to a strictly defined topic area. Its interests center on the biological, social, and cultural dimensions of the human being. As a modern museum of science, it especially reflects what the sciences mean for society of the 21st century. Through its exhibitions and events, the Deutsches Hygiene-Museum offers an independent public forum for the dialogue between science and society.
