Museum of pathology


In 1923, the Academic Council of the Izmerov Research Institute of Occupational Health made the decision at one of its first meetings to found a new research library and museum. At the end of the year, its Research Museum was already open to the public.


Museum exhibitions devoted to occupational health issues gained traction in the last quarter of the 19th century. In 1876, the 1st International Health Expo was held in Brussels, where the Russian stand stole the show with its unique student desk developed by F. F. Erisman. His invention won the event’s silver medal, and shortly afterwards hit the production lines of school and home furniture factories throughout Europe.


Today, the museum is the first and only of its kind in Russia devoted to healthcare in industry and agriculture. It offers visitors a historical look at domestic scientific and technological progress, medicine, and the effects of political transitions on the health of workers and students. It focuses on common issues in social healthcare research as concerns the environment, the sick rate and occupational illnesses, the mortality rate and the birth rate.


The museum’s collection features unique books on workplace health and occupational health issues spanning the last three centuries, protective equipment and workwear, and materials on workplace and educational safety. Scholars, medical professionals, and occupational medicine specialists alike will find something interesting in the museum’s displays.


Colorful exhibition charts, diagrams and photos treat visitors to an inside look into the influence of various workplace hazards emerging with the advent of new technologies, the need for workplace health precautions, and the effects of workplace safety precautions. The museum is primarily designed for scholars, medical professionals, medical school students, engineers and maintenance personnel, and anyone working in the healthcare industry.
