The Steno Museum

The National Museum for the History of Science and Medicine
At the Steno Museum for the History of Science and Medicine both children and adults can go on a trail of discovery in the natural sciences and can explore the cultural history of medicine. Here there are scientific instruments, an array of fascinating inter-activities where, amongst many other things, you can test Galileo’s law of gravity, or play with your own mirror image.
Explore the Universe
Within the planetarium's darkness you will be introduced to galaxies, planets and other fascinating sky phenomena, and in the museum's colourful herb garden you can enjoy the sight and the scent of the more than 300 historic medicinal plants.
