The interactive museum features a unique collection of 17-to-20-century tools, instruments, and medicines from Russia, Europe, the Americas, and Eastern countries.

It covers a wide range of medical specialties – from surgery, obstetrics and dentistry to ophthalmology, therapy and pharmaceutics.

If accompanied by a guide, guests can try to ‘reactivate’ the old instruments – to make a pellet with an ancient device, or even to extract a tooth, imagining themselves as a 17th-century dentist.
