Museum Unveils Grisly Human Diseases

A new museum has opened its doors in Australia – but it’s not for the faint of heart.

Sydney’s Museum of Human Disease, previously used as a resource of for medical students, is now open to the public, Agence-France Presse reported. There’s more than 2,000 cadaver parts on display, which illustrate a slew of ailments.

"It's obviously still extraordinary, confronting and graphic for people but it's done in a way that gives them the opportunity to learn," said curator Robert Lansdown.

He said brains, feet and hands tended to produce the strongest reaction.

"We haven't had anyone faint but we've had quite a few who have recognized it's coming on and they'll take a break and get some fresh air," he said.
