Help improve Atlas Obscura by expanding Moulagenmuseum with additional information or photos.
Dedicated specifically to moulages, this is the second-largest collection of moulages after Le Musée des Moulages in Saint Louis, France.
Started relatively late, in 1916, the Moulagenmuseum contains many wax representations of diseases such as cancer, syphilis, and leprosy. Prior to color photography and advanced plastics technology, moulages were indispensable tools for sharing medical and scientific knowledge.
