The opening of the new temporary exhibition entitled “Between Warsaw and Zakopane. The Legend of Tytus Chałubiński “was scheduled for March 23, 2020. Due to the epidemiological situation, the Museum of the History of Medicine has decided to postpone the ceremony until there is no health risk for visitors. The exhibition has been prepared under auspices of His Magnificence, prof. dr hab. Mirosław Wielgoś and all potential visitors are cordially invited to visit at later time in the future. The presentation of the life and legacy of Tytus Chałubiński is meant to be an impulse to familiarize ourselves better with this extraordinary figure. A wide range of his interests (from medicine, botany , art history to mountaineering) shows that he had a very dynamic and open-minded personality. Treating patients, regardless of their social background and status, with great empathy and understanding can be an example for everyone, not only doctors.
The exhibition will be open until March 2021.
