Technical History

The Collection of Technical and Medical History comprises somewhat more than 10,000 objects from the Late Middle Ages to the present. The collection documents the variety of technical and medical developments and their uses in everyday life. It focuses on objects from the 19th and 20th centuries, primarily from the German territories.

Among the most extensive parts of the technical history are objects on the history of crafts, agriculture and industry as well as the areas of household and family. Objects on film and television, traffic and transport as well as a model collection are also centres of interest.

The stock of objects on medical history comprises medicinal equipment and instruments as well as display models and moulages (mouldings of diseased parts of the body). The collection also contains types of wound dressings and remedies, prostheses and other medical aids.
