Musée Flaubert et d'Histoire de la Médecine, Rouen

(75 reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum
Delve into the development of medical technology and practices at Musée Flaubert et d'Histoire de la Médecine, which was also the birthplace of famed French writer Gustave Flaubert. Explore the museum, including recreated living quarters from the 18th century, medical oddities, and Flaubert's birth room. Despite the museum's name, the focus lies on medical technology from the 18th and 19th centuries rather than the author's life. You'll have the chance to see unorthodox medical instruments, stuffed mannequins, and even the mummified heads of several people executed by hanging. Don't miss the full-sized and restored apothecary, which gives you a glimpse into the medical industry's past. Plan your visit to Musée Flaubert et d'Histoire de la Médecine and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Rouen holiday planner.
