You have to check this place out on your trip. Take the 1pm tour daily for $5 and you'll learn a bunch of interesting facts about medicine and sickness in New Orleans in the late 1800s. The tour guide was perfect!!! So happy we stopped by.

The museum is densely packed with artifacts and educational information. Take the time to read all the signs to get the... 更多
If at all interested in medicine of the past this place is a must see. The ground floor is filled with tons of medical tools and bottles with medicine from the 1800s. It's amazing how many drugs that are illegal today were used. The second floors offers a look at more medical tools with a bit more room to see... 更多
