During a tour of the Leprosy Museum St. Jørgen's hospital you will learn about leprosy and its spread. You will not only learn about the efforts to fight the disease through mapping, building institutions, legislation and medical research, but also reflect on the connection between disease and social conditions, and how diseases can affect social relationships. Among the many individuals who have lived parts of their lives at St. Jørgens Hospital, there are stories of stigma and separation, but also of strong family ties, unity and contact with the city's inhabitants. A walk through the well-preserved main building and the church in this unique cultural monument will give an impression of daily life here for many thousands of residents until 1946. Duration approx. 45-60 min. Meeting point at the museum entrance.
