German Hygiene Museum Makes Unique Addition to Europe Tour

Although there are plenty of museums dedicated to art or history, one unique exhibit hall awaits travelers on European tours that pass through Germany - the German Hygiene Museum. This institution provides insight into the cultural, societal and scientific changes that have occurred over the last century. With permanent and temporary exhibits, visitors will find that time flies while they explore this one-of-a-kind destination.

The main attraction of this museum is the "Human Adventure," which explores the scientific aspects of the body and various health topics, the official website indicates. There are interactive displays as well as more than 1,300 objects like the "transparent man." Guests can also learn about how the human diet has changed in recent decades and explore sexuality, beauty and even life and death.

There are also a number of temporary exhibits that cover a variety of topics from religion to art and even the role of health and hygiene in propaganda, according to Vice.com. Travelers will find objects such as early model X-ray machines and hygiene tools that were common many years ago. This museum offers guests the chance to learn how far humanity has come in terms of how people take care of themselves and how they interact with others and the world around them.
