  • This was a great little museum, and they had enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff. Stayed behind after the tour and chatted for a while, it was definitely worth it! Anyone interested in how medicine used to be done, and seeing the methods that eventually evolved or disappeared to make way for modern medicine should check this place out.
  • We took the tour last weekend. The two tour guides were fantastic. Fun visit!! Check it out!
  • Very interesting. Staff plays the part as if they are from the time period.
  • Overpriced, but the leeches were interesting
  • One of my favorite historical sites in Fredericksburg! They do an awesome job making you feel like you have walked into the past. A must visit!
