When dealing with the dead, archaeology faces a dilemma: On the one hand, there is the desire to report on the life and death of the deceased with the greatest possible precision. On the other hand, it is important to treat the human remains with respect. Exhibitions in which human body parts are presented to the public also operate in this area of tension. Researchers, but also visitors, are faced with the question of where curiosity ends and where the personal rights of each individual begin. For our exhibition, we have decided to present the original body parts in a restrained and dark manner. You have the option of avoiding this part of the exhibition.
Animals are not allowed in the museum. The exception is assistance dogs.
No, there is a general ban on smoking in the museum.
