Leprosy Museum – St. George’s Hospital

2472

In the Middle Ages, St. George’s was a hospital for lepers. The present-day buildings date back to the beginning of the 18th century. Norwegian doctors – and in particular Armauer Hansen who gave his name to another term for leprosy “Hansen’s disease” – are well-known for their struggle against leprosy. The museum exhibits the Bergen Collection of the History of Medicine and a presentation of Norway’s contribution to leprosy research.
