The permanent collections in the museum's upper gallery are being refurbished and will be opened again from 8 July 2021.
With the official opening of the refurbished Aletta Jacobs room in 2018 the University Museum Groningen is presenting three iconic objects from Dutch history. These were specially selected for the ‘Canon of Dutch History’ and give a unique insight into the history of women’s emancipation.
In the museum's anatomy room around 50 anatomical preparations are on display, as well as some skeletons and the first book on the structure of the human body by Vesalius, De humani corporis fabrica libri septum (1555). Some of the anatomical preparations are from the eighteenth century collections of Pieter de Riemer and professor Petrus Camper.
