The Museum collection of scientific instruments contains more
than 6,000 objects, illustrating the evolution of medicine
and medical specialties along the contemporary period, between
the ends of the 18th- and the 20th Centuries. The whole collection
constitutes a heritage of exceptional depth on the evolution
of medical activities in Catalonia.
We present 16 categories of medical objects, though several
devices could be placed in more than one category. From this
website, we want to show the value of the collection and the
possibility to learn from the displayed areas. We will gradually
add new links with relevant information, photographs and comments
on the collection objects. We hope you will enjoy our work
in unceasing construction.
