MuSeele (Museum of Psychiatry)


Germany | Göppingen



The MuSeele is a museum of the history of psychiatry in the psychiatric hospital Christophsbad in Göppingen, Germany. Psychiatry is a contested institution and for many people somehow eerie. Its extremely varied and partly tragic history contributes to this. The intention of this museum is to critically introduce as many aspects as possible to the public and to reduce barriers and prejudices without putting a varnish over the problems that still exist today. Four concepts are important in this presentation. Factually accurate information will allow visitors to arrive at their own conclusions. Provocative presentations offer the chance to probe deeper, to reflect, and to start conversations. Visitors can engage interactively with different themes and exhibits. Multi-media presentations of topics mean that all senses are addressed and engaged.
