What people are saying:

I was very glad to have gone. I enjoyed the statues of the founding members of medicine which started with the real father of med ancient Architect Egyptian Imhotep... they have a room dedicated to surgical nursing professionals, a large exhibit on Xray, and many exhibits of antique surgical procedure instruments and amputation saws. The art through out the grey stone 19th century mansion, is breathtaking.
