A Museum on Anatomy Sep 12, 2009
I may be alone on this, but on seeing a clean bright white building hosting a "Hygiene Museum" founded by a mouth-wash magnate, I expected the displays inside to sort of revove around the theme of hygiene. It was somewhat dissapointing not to be regaled with a history of mouth-wash and dental care in Germany, but as a museum of anatomy this was actually quite good.

The museum was full of stripped down models of the human body, in the "exposed muscle" variety. Naturally the most interesting part was on STDs and human sexuality, the medical display models of severe STDs were disgustingly lifelike and the lack of English signs on the odd displays on sexuality allowed our imaginations to run wild. One interesting wall held many quotes by Germans to describe their first sexual experience. Not speaking German I can't make any generalisations but "unromantisch" appeared commonly. The best response we could understand was "genial".
