About this sight

If you're looking for a unique experience, the Parasitological Museum will not disappoint, as it is dedicated entirely to parasites. Realistic life-sized and enlarged models of parasites are on display, including the world's largest known tapeworm. The first floor of the museum focuses on a general overview of parasites and their purpose. The second floor is more specific to the different types of parasite, showcasing over 300 specimens. Admission to the museum is free, but donations are accepted as they are a nonprofit charitable organization.
