Seeking Private, Curious, Arcane and Overlooked Scandinavian Museums, Collections, Sights and Curiosities
I am in the midst of planning a trip to Scandinavia around the upcoming Congress for the European Association of Museums for the History of Medical Sciences on the theme of ‘Contemporary medical science and technology as a challenge to museums' to be held at Medical Museion in Copenhangen, September 16-18.
More on that conference--at which I will be delivering a paper--soon (though the impatient among you can see the full line up here); for now, I mention it only as an excuse for soliciting suggestions from Morbid Anatomy readers regarding private, curious, arcane, and overlooked museums, collections, sights and curiosities that one shouldn't miss in this part of the world, of which I know frightfully little.
Any suggestions very much appreciated! Suggesters can leave comments on this post or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks so much!
