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.

  • Very interesting

  • Un musée qui ne paye pas de mine et pourtant, on a l'impression d'entrer dans un cabinet de curiosité. Il harmonise l'histoire de la médecine et l'histoire de ses occupants, notamment Gustave Flaubert. La salle sur la phrénologie est étonnante ! C'est un lieu qui mériterait plus de visibilité car souvent occulté par les visiteurs de passage à Rouen.

  • Chouette musée. Petit certes, mais je trouve les commentaires un peu trop virulents. Vous n'y passerez pas une après-midi mais facilement 1,5h pour découvrir la maison dans laquelle Flaubert a grandi. Il y a pas mal d'infos et de matériel médical ancien. Accueil très sympathique contrairement à ce qui est mentionné

  • Petit musée assez méconnu bien que très intéressant, avec de belles curiosités comme les momies ou des instruments de médecine d'autrefois.

  • Superbe expérience entre Flaubert et la Médecine ! Je recommande
