Adler Museum of Medicine

Interesting
This museum contains a collection that is considered one of the most important in the world. From 17C anatomical handbooks to modern microscopes, from Victorian era curiosities to the terrifying instruments of early surgery, and from traditional African medicinal plants to the specialities of Western pharmacopeia, it takes you on an insightful journey down the centuries in the footsteps of daring doctors such as South African Chris Barnard, who performed the first heart transplant in 1967. A fascinating experience even for those who know little about the subject.
