The Museum of the Medical University of Gdansk will host the first virtual exhibition entitled “Past Future-Stories about the History of Medicine”. In a series of short films, the museum introduces the history of treatment through medical inventions.
Modern medicine owes countless discoveries and inventions. Today, no one is surprised by ultrasound, MRI, or ubiquitous computers.
Medical knowledge and technology have come a long way-from superstition to professional therapy, from surgery without anesthesia to laparoscopic surgery.
The Museum of the Medical University of Gdansk decided to display this route, which displays various exhibitions in a traditional form. It has been in operation since 2006 and now hopes to exhibit it in virtual form.
The title of the first online exhibition is “Past Future-Stories about Medical History”. As its creator said, it “tells the history of medicine through the history of objects in the MUG Museum collection, current exhibitions and until recently the important equipment elements of hospitals, treatment rooms, laboratories and research rooms”.
The author talks about these exhibitions and their past in a series of short films. You can already learn about the history of… Syringe, stethoscope, X-ray machine or centrifuge (https://muzeum.gumed.edu.pl/61668.html).
The number of movies continues to grow.
There are countless exhibitors who meet the interests of the younger generation who are just beginning to develop their passion for science or medicine.
The project was funded by the “Science Social Responsibility” program of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education.
