    If you work in the hospital it is interesting to see this small museum that traces our medicine through time. Many surgical instruments that show us the evolution and tells us that it is better to be treated in our time because sometimes the violence of some instruments. Good conservation of the parts. actually for those who know nothing there can be some explanations. superb room. allow one hour to enjoy this visit; very welcoming. price 3,50 euros

    A small museum with a strong cache of surgical instruments but also some interesting pieces. With the Dupeytron museum closed I was hoping some of it's displays would have been added here. Sadly not. Worth a visit if you have an interest in medical history, not expensive at $3.50 entry.

    As medical professionals, my hubby and I were able to make good estimations of what they had on presentation. However if you don't speak French and don't work in the field of medicine I am not sure how interesting this may be. Otherwise very cool!

    A collection of old medical instruments, interesting about equally for myself (an MD) and my wife. A few fascinating relics, no English. Probably much better with a tour.

    Hard to find, a little small, but top quality. They have one of those famous tables made of petrified human remains.

    Little small and not for children!

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
