This proposal is certainly unusual and definitely not for everyone. The exhibits at the Museum of the Department of Anatomy of the Jagiellonian University Medical College are human bodies prepared for scientific purposes (some visually shocking). The most appropriate recipients of the exhibition are students of medical and related faculties. As the tour requires anatomical knowledge and emotional maturity to properly understand the exhibit, it is available from the age of 16 by prior arrangement.

Obwarzanek Museum

Into the Darkness is a moving experience.
