St. Petersburg


The Museum of Hygiene

The Museum of Hygiene

The Museum of Hygiene (prior to 1990, the Museum of Public Health) was opened in 1919 for the purpose of medical enlightenment and the dissemination of medical knowledge. It served to distribute the importance of sanitary hygiene amongst the population who weren’t taught much about this in school.

The exhibits display campaigns against smoking, alcoholism and drug addiction, on sexual education, AIDS prevention and radiation hygiene. There| is a unique collection of anatomical preparations, an electro physical "glass man" model and a giant artificial heart. There is also an area devoted to the history of health care in St. Petersburg.

It is well displayed, albeit with little English, which raises a morbid interest from anyone visiting the museum.
