One of the deadliest diseases to ever hit the world, the stigma and the spread of leprosy is known to one and all. People diagnosed with leprosy were subject to humiliation and were considered as outcasts and thereby banished from their community. St. George’s hospital in Bergen was home to many a lepers during the disease’s peak.
Today, the hospital stands as a monument for the millions that fell prey to this disease. Now the name of the museum might throw you off but don’t be misled by it- the Leprosy Museum is one of the best places where you’ll learn as much as you can about early medicine and stupendous efforts that went into the research of Leprosy in order to understand and combat it.
