Leprosy Museum
Place type: MEDICINE
Kong Oscars gate 59

An interesting insight of how leprosy sufferers were isolated in these hospitals and yet treated with dignity and respect. The hospital even has its own church in which the patients could worship. Each patient's cell had moving accounts of their everyday life, hopes and fears. Well worth a visit but nevertheless a sobering experience.
