Dear Visitors,

We are delighted about your interest in the Museum of Contraception and Termination of Pregnancies (MUVS).

Unfortunately, in accordance with the new Covid-19 prevention regulations, we have to keep the museum closed until 30/11/2020.

Until then we are very happy to offer virtual guided tours for groups. For further information please contact us via e-mail or telephone.

Thank you very much for your understanding, and hopefully see you soon.
With kind regards and stay safe!

Sincerely, your MUVS Team

Ferdinand Peeters (1918-1998)

It is him that we have to thank for the first ever pill in Germany, Anovlar: he investigated, assessed and developed the dosage of a Schering research preparation.
