28 January 2018
Gelukkig gezond

Due to its public success, the exhibition Gelukkig Gezond! Histories of Healthy Ageing at the University Museum has been prolonged until 16 July 2018.

  • Open Tuesday - Sunday, 1 -5 p.m.
  • Entrance free
  • For group tours and other activities, please check the website

In the exhibition visitors are challenged to think about the classical ideas and concepts of health and ‘healthy living’. The exhibition is structured around different themes, concentrating on the most important issues of modern healthy ageing and the medical advices dating from before the birth of the modern clinic and laboratory. Before 1800 the health discourse was characterized by the six so-called non-naturalswhich determined if someone was healthy. Thematically these non-naturals form the backbone of the exhibition: climate, diet, healthy bowel movement, exercise, sleeping patterns and emotional balance. These non-naturals also fit in closely with the G6, the vision on Healthy Ageing used by the city of Groningen.
