Medicine has come a long way even in the last century, and if you want to know exactly where it came from, this is the place to find out. The author who became infamous with Madame Bovary also has a lot of literary exhibits here as well as personal effects, but most of the paraphernalia are fascinating pre-modern medical equipment. Seriously, you’ll wonder how is it that doctors managed to save anyone at all with all this primitive junk, but they did. From Antiquity to modern times, medical history is here to be read. There’s even an old time pharmacy a bit reminiscent of an apothecary out of Harry Potter and a 1910 dentistry set up. Outside, there’s a traditional medical herb garden. At any rate, a visit here will leave you better prepared to survive after a potential apolcalypse.
