The Museum of the History of Lithuanian Pharmacy and Medicine

Tauras Antanas Mekas

Abstract


The exposition of Kaunas University of Medicine Museum of the History of Lithuanian Pharmacy and Medicine is arranged in a manner that allows the visitor to travel a century back in time as he enters an old pharmacy and physicians offices. The Museum is a place where students learn the history  of their specialty by handling old instruments and being in an authentic environment. By participating in live archeology festivals, the employees of the Museum arouse interest in the ancient medicine even among people who previously were not interested in museums at all. Many of such people will eventually become visitors of the Museum.

 

Key words: Museum - History of medicine - History of pharmacy
