IamA curator at the Medical Museion where the Conjoined Twins from 1848 are exhibited. AMA!
Hey everyone, this is Daniel Noesgaard from the Medical Museion in Copenhagen.
Last week a picture from our collection gained a lot of attention on Reddit. The picture shows the remains of a pair of conjoined twin girls from 1848. They are currently on exhibit at our museum. While we do not know everything about their origin and history, etc. we do know a bit. If you have any questions about the conjoined twins, other specimens or medical museum stuff in general, please ask. If I can't answer, I'll get someone who can :)
UPDATE: Here's a super nerdy article on the preservation of the twins
UPDATE II: Going to bed now (it's 11pm here) but I'll check in again tomorrow. Thanks for great questions so far!
UPDATE III: Back to answer more questions if you have any! :)
