After excursions to Paris, Hannover-Berlin, Copenhagen and Edinburgh our Dutch VHG is coming 5-6 September focussing on Utrecht, the homestead of the Dutch Veterinary Sciences.
The ins and outs of the extensive collections of veterinary anatomy and pathology in the study landscape will be explained during a guided tour.
The veterinary museum is fortunate to be incorporated in the University Museum in the city centre which has a floor dedicated to this collection. Since the collection is huge most of it is kept in the depot of this museum on the university campus close by the faculty. In both museum and depot tours will be given by specialized guides.
