The Museum of Medical History, located in the former University of Medicine’s library built in 1905, in the heart of the Latin Quarter of Paris, invites you to discover the history of medicine and surgery, from antiquity to the 19th Century. Over 1500 objects are on display in windows, all unique and bizarre. They show, chronologically, the origins of medicine. A dis-mountable anatomical dummy made of lime wood, and composed of over 3000 sculpted pieces (on Bonaparte’s order), stands at the museum entrance and welcomes the visitors on their way towards a strange journey.
