  • This museum was very interesting. Lots to see, including a complete skeleton and an iron lung. The apothecary's shop was fascinating with an audio commentary about how he made his medications. Huge pa...  more »

  • המוזיאון ממוקם ליד גן החיות לינקולן. הייתי עם ילדים בגילאי ביס יסודי שנהנו גם הם. חניה יש במספר חניונים שעובדים עם המוזיאון כך שחניה עולה 9$ בלבד. המוזיאון הסה מומלץ אם לפחות אחד המבקרים הוא בעל רקע ר...  more »

  • This place was pretty awesome! LOTS of stuff to read so make sure you are prepared to stay for awhile. You learn and experience more the more you read. Interesting and educational displays, lots of history to learn, really cool collection of antique medical equipment like an iron lung, old surgical kits, original X-Ray machine, etc. Artist in residence room is a really cool touch. Highly recommend.
  • This museum is like a Tardis, it's bigger than it looks, it feels like it is small but there is so much to see and learn, that you will be tired when you're done. Displays well thought out and very educational! This is definitely not a museum for children or the faint of heart. Highly recommend!
  • Beautiful and fascinating. They threw an after hours event with free food and drinks, which was a great catalyst for getting people in the door. If you are at all interested in medical practice history, you have to check this out.
  • This is a really interesting museum. I really like read about how surgical science has changed throughout history. I'll have to bring my dad here since he is a doctor.
  • This is an under-the-radar kind of place to visit in Chicago. The collection of medical materials and equipment is eclectic and bizarre. Worth the trip for anyone interested in health/medicine.
