The museum will open to visitors as soon as the epidemiological situation in Latvia improves.

The Rīga Stradiņš University (RSU) Anatomy Museum is an unusual museum with a historical collection and a modern approach. It is a place where visitors can get to know the diversity of human bodies and to see what usually only surgeons or anatomists see. The collection was created in the first half of the 20th century and will soon be available to a wide audience.

The museum will be a place where visitors can learn about historical anatomical preparations and will also host a variety of social, educational and cultural activities. Until the new museum opens its doors you can follow the latest developments regarding the exhibitions as well as museum events on Facebook and Twitter.
