Musee de l'Assistance Publique - Hopitaux de Paris Museum



Known as the Musee AP - HP for short, this museum is dedicated to the history of hospitals, disease, doctors, medicine, social and religious history of medicine and much more, that hold a unique collection in France.

About the Musee de l'Assistance Publique

The Musee de l'Assistance Publique - Hopitaux de Paris or Musee AP - HP for short, is one of the very unusual museums in Paris that was first founded back in 1934 and housed within the Hotel Miramoin on the Quai de la Tournelle.

In fact, this was actually the first hospital museum in France that was and still is dedicated to the social and religious history of medicine, health professions including doctors and surgeons, along with its detailed representations showing the history of health and disease plus much more.
Then later on the Musee d’Art Dentaire Pierre Fauchard was also transferred to the Musee de l'Assistance Publique - Hopitaux de Paris when the dental museum closed itself in 2001, however, in the June of 2012 the Musee AP - HP closed its doors to the public within the Hotel Miramoin, with a view to changing its location as well as improving the visitors experience at the same time.

But since that time, the Musee AP - HP has organised different temporary exhibitions within other museums in Paris, France and in other countries, and to give you an idea, there was a temporary exhibition dedicated to Charcot, who was known as the father of modern neurology, held at the Eglise St Louis Pitie-Salpetriere hospital until July 2014.

And plans are still in place for a dedicated museum to re-open its doors in 2016 within the Hotel-Dieu, which is actually classified as the oldest hospital in Paris, located on the Ile de la Cite island by the Pont au Double bridge.
