The historic darüşşifa of the complex was incorporated into the structure of Edirne-based Trakya University in 1993, and converted into a hospital museum in 1997, a museum dedicated to the history of medicine and health matters in general. It has been developing constantly ever since. It remains Turkey's only museum in its field and provides varied and valuable information to visitors on the development of medicine and of medical services throughout history, especially Ottoman history. The museum is the second most visited historical site in Edirne after the Selimiye Mosque.[1] The museum was awarded the European Council's "European Council Museum Award" in 2004.[2]
