RSU Anatomy Museum: a historical collection with a contemporary approach

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


On 16 June 2021, the renovated RSU Anatomy Museum opened its doors to visitors. The museum exhibitions are based on the first anat- omy training collection in Latvia. The collection was created in the Riga Anatomical Theatre in the 1920s and 1930s and used to train future medical specialists. Nowadays, the museum is open to everyone. Everyone is invited to look into what is usually seen only by anatomists or surgeons and to discover the diversity of human bodies. Skeletons, embryos, bones, body parts and organs – their structure and variations, healthy and afflicted with disease. Everything is real here. The museum is located at 9 Kronvalda Boulevard, in the Anatomical Theatre building complex.
