Having been to the museum at Guys hospital I was really excited to see this collection. While it was very interesting for me and I love the "old world" with the plethora of books and drawers as you go in I couldn't stop comparing it. I enjoyed it but came away disappointed that so many of the exhibits have been... More

I'm in the medical business so I'm familiar with anatomy and diseases. My mission was to find the brain of a famous patient analysed by M. Paul Broca almost 150years ago! The museum is easy to find, but strangely situated. After ringing a bell a friendly lady comes to open the door and you step into something that reminds you... More

I like horror movies and the creepy and grotesque, but even my stomach was feeling a little queasy here. I commend this museum to those who think they'd like to live in a previous era without state-of-the-art medicine. The horrors of syphilis, tuberculosis, infections, etc., are on view here. Unbelievable actual skeletons with twisted bones and skulls with burst sinus... More

It is very hard to find this museum if you don't know where to go, since there are no exterior signs at all. In there, you have a room full of medical and anatomical oddities and most of them are presented by guide, which for sure is very interesting but it's just in french so it becomes difficult to enjoy...

Its not easy to find it, there are no signs to guide you to this "un-official" museum. A large space with a collection of mutant babys from around 200 years ago, preserved in glass jars. There are also hand made sculpts of deformed and distorted heads from that same time. Me and my 14 years old son, liked it a... More

Don't follow the map, the museum is located at 15 Rue de l'Ecole de Medecine near the corner of saint-Germain blv and saint-michel blv. Walk past some gates with # 15 above them, into a courtyard and then into the building on the right. Walk down a few steps / wooden ramp, turn left and its straight ahead. It is... More

In this strange museum you will find an impressive collection of 17th/18th century anatomical items illustrating diseases and malformations. It's quite small and really hard to find, but for sure it's worth if you are interested in such topic or if just simply enjoy "strange" exhibitions. Entry fee was €5.
