A brief history of the Museum
The first exhibition at the Robert Koch Institute was designed for the entombment of Robert Koch on 4 December 1910 in the anteroom of the Mausoleum. After the completion of the annex, a larger museum was installed on the ground floor of the latter in 1913. As a result of the conversion and enlargement of the insitute after the Second World War, another museum was created in the newly constructed anterior building of the main building, which was inaugurated on the occasion of the 50th death anniversary of Robert Koch (1960) at the current site. After over 50 years, the museum was expanded in 2017 and the exhibition re-designed. The current exhibition shows selected exhibits from Robert Koch's estate. The exhibition presents themes based on the current working environment of the Institute across 180 m². It tells the exciting story of the transformation of the scientific view of the world of health and disease, and the role played by the ideas and discoveries of Robert Koch and his students, which are in part still applied in today’s research.
