Manipal Museum of Anatomy and Pathology

The sprawling Anatomy section houses well-preserved specimens of the human body from head to toe, and everything in between.

Dr SS Godbole, the first Anatomy Professor of Kasturba Medical College, had a passion for preservation. His techniques of careful dissection, processing and mounting of anatomical specimens are followed even today. It was under his watch that the museum opened its doors to the public in 1954, with over 650 specimens from his own collection.

Billed as one of the largest in Asia, the museum boasts of over 3,000 specimens and samples of things anatomical, including the skulls of an elephant and a whale, and the long skeleton of a King Cobra.

This website

This website was created as part of the first phase of the digitalisation of the museum.

The project aims to develop the anatomy museum as an innovative online educational tool through digitalisation of all the human body specimens with relevant explanation.

It helps to establish a student learning centre that would encourage innovation in learning anatomy.

In this phase 100 core specimens have been digitised.
