Built inits dark brick exterior and marbled columns gave little indication of the chilling mysteries within. The first thing I saw was a cabinet full of human skulls. Each labeled with the age, nationality, and manner of death. Today, the museum has a collection of over 20, items, each more disturbing than the last.
While the building is quite large, the museum itself is surprisingly small, filling only four large rooms. However, what they lack in space, they make up for by placing objects in floor-to-ceiling bookshelves. This creates a great effect and makes the museum quite striking, but makes it difficult to exam many of the items on the lower and upper shelves.
While there were many fascinating pieces in the museum, there were several that I found especially interesting. While the cross-sections themselves might have bit a bit underwhelming, the concept that these sections came from one of the most magnificent brains in history was really quite captivating.
I also found the collection of skeletons at the museum to be quite interesting. Each skeleton was different. Some had wildly obvious deformities, which others were ridiculously large or small. For me, the most disturbing aspect of the museum was the many skeletons from fetuses and babies.
While some were simply skeletons, others were the remains of deformed fetuses that had been preserved with macabre detail.
