History of Museum of the Medicine History
The first architect of the future museum was Asem Ali. However, unfortunately, he died before the construction was completed. The museum building was destroyed during the Greek occupation of Manisa. Only a few years later, in 1962, restoration work began with the financial support of the University of Celal Bayar. In 1996, the Museum of the Medicine History opened its doors to visitors.
As exhibits in the museum, you can see various medical equipment, as well as models of wax dummies, telling about what methods of treatment of diseases were used in antiquity.
