Permanent exhibition on the Medical History of Smiltene
Smiltene Municipality Museum is located in Mēru manor house which is gradually being renovated. In one of the rooms of the house Dd studio in collaboration with the museum has created a permanent exhibition dedicated to the medical history of Smiltene region. Most of the exhibits presented at the exhibition come from the collection of Smiltene doctors Jānis and Ilze Krūmals.
The exhibition is made to attract both visitors that are professionally related to medicine and students who visit the museum because they want to learn more about their municipality and region. Along the historical exhibits, visitors find animated and interactive installations that allow them to check their eye-sight, listen to heartbeat and sounds of the belly, and find out the application for medical plants that can be collected in Latvia. Stylistically the exhibition refers to the atmosphere of a pharmacy of the mid-20th century.
