About museum

The museum was founded on the basis of the dental clinic “ZDOROVIE” in 2007. Our first exhibit was a dentist chair from RITTER Continental (Germany, 1910). Since then, our collection has expanded significantly and now has more than 1,500 medical items from the past centuries. The museum has a wide range of equipment and instruments from such areas of medicine as surgery, urology, obstetrics, ophthalmology, otorhinolaryngology, physiotherapy, etc. A significant proportion of the exhibits was produced by well-known foreign companies of the late 19th and early 20th centuries and leading artisans of tsarist Russia. An important component of our exhibition is the ancient exhibits dedicated to pharmaceuticals.

We receive rave reviews from many visitors to our museum.
