Sightseeing

The Museum of the History of Medicine of the Medical University of Warsaw invites individuals as well as organized groups to view the university grounds. Visitors, in the company of a museum guide, will have the opportunity to become acquainted in detail with the history of the University and to view the most interesting rooms and commemorative plaques associated with famous physicians.

A walk through the Banach Campus will enable visitors to see, among other things, the Rector’s building (and the Senate Hall), the Library and Information Centre, the Teaching Centre, and the Children’s Clinical Hospital in Warsaw, named after Józef Polikarp Brudziński, as well as the Sports & Rehabilitation Centre.
