A journey into the body at the Deutsches Museum
Robotic systems are so precise today that they can position the smallest objects in exactly the right place. What opportunities does that offer in medicine? A new exhibition at the Deutsches Museum illustrates that for interested visitors.
A very personal tour
This is not a medical history exhibition, but we focus on the current state of medicine. The first incubator built by Robert Koch, who succeeded in cultivating the tuberculosis pathogen for the first time, is located here. But we also showcase innovations such as hybrid OR equipment or the vaccine production process. This variety has given us the freedom to tell stories that affect our visitors personally.Florian Breitsameter, curatorial director of the health exhibition and curator for pharmacy and medical engineering

Building health awareness
We have many hands-on stations in our exhibition that create a playful approach to health topics. At the same time, there are interactive media stations with extensively documented cases. An above-average number of our visitors to the exhibition so far have a medical background. It's precisely this mixture that makes our exhibition interesting for different groups of people.Anka Müller, PhD, scientific assistant
