Museum exhibition occupies an area of 1,200 square meters where over 1,500 exhibits are located; each of them tells not only about Nikolay Pirogov’s life and activity but depicts that historical time interval when great scientist lived.
Museum visitors have an opportunity to see the medical instruments used in doctors’ practice during the Pyrogov’s epoch, to view unique print editions, to feel the spirit and the atmosphere of the 19th century architecture, memos and history. On display there are Pirogov’s scientific works, his manuscripts and personal items, painting works, drawings, sacral and sculpture art. Museum exposition is being constantly replenished with new materials and documents.
Museum-pharmacy is a peculiar reproduction of Pirogov’s professional life. And the vault with Nikolay Pirogov’s embalmed body is the real sanctity. Systematical re-embalming works give an opportunity to preserve the body in a satisfactory condition.
