The Belgian Museum of Radiology was established in 1990 in the corridors of the radiology department of the military hospital in Brussels. According to a survey conducted in "Science Museum" in London with 40,000 visitors , it seems that the most important discovery of the 19th century is radiology ! Remember also that radiology is used in many fields different from medicine . It is a fact that due to to the radiology, more than 30 Nobel Laureates have gained their prizes with the practical implementation of this technology. In the world, museums of radiology are rather rare.
In 1997, our section of neuroradiology was transferred to the Museum of Psychiatry "Dr. Guislain" in Ghent.
Currently we have a site in Brussels and another in Ghent. Guided tours are availble in both locations (on demand)!
A nonprofit association , called ASKLEPIOS, supports activities whom are organized on regular periods by museum volunteers. 2015 was the year of 25th anniversary of our museum. We wish you an instructive visit to this site because you are the best ambassador to promote the museum. We count on you to join our organisation. We are looking forward te hear from you!
