Welcome to a series of special thematic tours at "FOLK – From racial types to DNA sequences."

This tour explores our newest exhibition, FOLK, from the point of view of the history of medicine. It focuses on how ideas of purity and hygiene shape the ways people have been categorized by scientists and doctors, now and in the past.

The tour is given by Curator of the History of Medicine Phil Loring and will be in English.

The tour is free with admission ticket to the museum.
