Our Tooth Museum

Travel with us to the past!

You have a toothache right now? Today? Do you have any idea what that might have meant for you in the past, just a few centuries ago? In even older times or faraway places?

Would you like to know how an Ancient Egyptian or a medieval alchemist would have tried to help you?

Come to our Tooth Museum at the Josephinum and experience brilliant inventions that leave people speechless even today.

See how doctors of the past tried to alleviate the sufferings of those seeking their help! And discover how people of time’s past transmitted their knowledge, before the age of the computer and the internet.
