Barcelona sense museu universitari: el cas de la Facultat de Medicina

Alfons Zarzoso Orellana


This paper tries to ascertain in the history of the University of Barcelona why
such an institution did not develop a university museum. It is analyzed the case of the
Medical Faculty in order to see how the medical museum stood as one of its teaching
institutions in a long period between the end of the 18th century and the first third of
the 20th century. This case considers several heritage resources spaces, archive
evidences, textbooks and scientific objects not only to show the richness of a material
culture and history of the university, but also to express the need of developing at
least a plan to recover, inventory, study and preserve the scientific heritage of the University
of Barcelona.
