Luminaries and surgeons of polish medicine

We are very pleased to share with you the unusual works of art that our Museum has acquired.

We present you over 100 caricatures of Polish scientists drawn by the famous caricature artist Grzegorz Szumowski, which are part of the publication “Luminaries of Warsaw Medicine in Caricature”, published in 2009 on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of teaching medicine in Warsaw.

Contemporary caricatures refer to the pre-war publication showing Professors and Assistants of the Faculty of Medicine, published on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the “Koło Medyków” association.

In the second gallery below you will see caricatures of famous Polish surgeons.



Milestones in the history of anatomy

We are pleased to present you “Milestones in the history of anatomy” – animation that was created as part of the project “Uncover the secrets of the human body in an anatomical theater of the 21st century”. This looped, short movie will be presented in our newly created museum educational space.

The film is full of drastic scenes, dramatic plot twists, but above all, delivers  a solid dose of knowledge about the history of human anatomy.
