The Museum for Medical Morphological Sciences (MMMS) is, to say the least, a strange place. Housed deep inside the monolithic edifice of the Medical Faculty at Stellenbosch University’s Tygerberg Campus in the northern suburbs of Cape Town, the museum is not easy to access. In fact, it was only recently that Dr. Ben Page and his colleagues opened the museum to the visiting public – first to high school groups (they had 4,000 pupils last year) and then to adult visitors in guided tours. In the not-too-distant future, anticipates Page, they hope to make the museum more widely accessible. Until that time, however, those who do make the effort to organise a group visit will find it well worth their while. And, perhaps, a little disturbing.
