Why a medical museum in Davos?
The central aim of the "Documentation of Medical Scientific Development" foundation, which was founded on November 6, 1988, is to process the continuously collected contemporary evidence of the fascinating history of medicine in Davos and to make it available to broad sections of the population.

On December 3, 1999, the Davos Medical Museum opened its first exhibition. Since then there have been regular thematic exhibitions. So far 22 Exhibitions on the history of medicine in Davos are offered.
The medical history collection already includes more than 500 objects, large parts of which are stored in depots for future exhibitions.
