International Museum of Surgical Science

When the International Museum of Surgical Science first opened on September 9, 1954, one of its first exhibits—the Hall of Immortals—displayed 12 stone statues of prominent figures in the fields of medicine and allied sciences. Though the museum’s four floors of exhibits have vastly expanded since its inception, the non-profit’s still stands for the very thing the Hall of Immortals celebrated: surgical advancements from around the world. The museum—located at a City of Chicago Landmark historic building—traces that evolution with a collection of more than 7,000 century-spanning artifacts, including prehistoric Peruvian trephined skulls, artificial limbs from the 19th-century, a working iron lung, and original X-rays taken by radiology pioneer Emil Grubbé.

Along with tools of the medical trade, the museum showcases more than 600 paintings and sculptures that depict specific procedures and events. The Anatomy in the Gallery exhibition houses medically themed contemporary art, commissioned oil paintings, and the original plaster casts of Napoleon’s death mask and the expired Twinkies that slowly poisoned him.

There's plenty to learn about at the International Museum of Surgical Science. It's especially helpful for biology majors, but anybody can enjoy it!

It was array of history and several surgical specialties highlighted along with elegant, depictive paintings and statues to medical history. Beautiful building. 4 floors....last room was dedicated to a modern art grant recipiant. It was dissappinting that an entire room was dedicated to interpretive dance and that somehow that ties into surgical sciences.
