The exhibition at the Archaeological Museum features 200 exhibits dating from the 14th century to modern times. Among the exhibited objects are combs, toothbrushes, cosmetic accessories, potties, glasses, surgical tools, syringes, pharmacy bottles and pipes for tobacco. The visitors have an opportunity to learn about the health condition of former residents of Gdańsk, find out where drinking water was drawn from, how the municipal sewage system functioned, and where hospitals and pharmacies were located. Part of the exhibition is an animated film, telling the story of many plagues, surgical reconstructions (limb amputations and skull trepanation).
