Museum Boerhaave recently opened a new exhibition, entitled: ‘Supermodels in Research and Education’ (Topmodellen in Onderzoek en Onderwijs)

Why have physical models been so popular in research and education over the past centuries? Museum Boerhaave made an effort to tackle this question in the new exhibition ‘Supermodels’. With the help of many beautiful models from the past and present, answers are given to the ‘why’ of models. On display are many models from Museum Boerhaave’s own stores, but also loans of research laboratories in The Netherlands and many other museums.

A handout with English exhibitions texts is available

Exhibition open till 25 september 2005 Museum opening hours: Tue-Sat: 10.00 – 17.00 Sun: 12.00 – 1700
