The so-called Narrenturm is an important monument to the history of health care and medicine in the late 18th century. It was founded in 1784 for the care of mentally ill people. The building is a listed monument and is now owned by the University of Vienna. In 1971, the Federal Pathological-Anatomical Museum was housed here, which was incorporated into the Natural History Museum Vienna in 2012 as the pathological-anatomical collection in the Narrenturm. The building was completely renovated and reopened in 2020 with a new display of the collection.
