Don't miss this one! The Gustavianum brochure speaks of "A house of unexpected treasures", and this is exactly right. The Augsburg Art Cabinet and the Anatomical Theater are worth a half day alone. Be sure to get the guided tour headphones and spend a few...More

A beautiful museum for the history nerd, the Egyptian nerd and the medical student. There are things for young and old and everyone in between.
