It's small but really cool the Groupon membership good for a year is the same price as 1 admission can't beat that. Be aware when they send you your card after you're first visit they also include a long list of other museums in ill but don't get excited I called all the Chicago museums and although they are part of this association they only honor it if you live at least 90 miles away and have to prove it over all I found it very interesting going back this week bring your reading glasses

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Inernational Museum of Surgical Science. Every room held our attention with historic aritifacts, artwork and educational materials on the history of surgery. I particularly enjoyed the Hall of Immortals, and the fact that the musuem is housed in a beautiful 100-year old mansion - the Eleanor Robinson Countiss House - was the icing on the cake. And, oh, yes, we learned a lot. Diane Krieger Spivak

About 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.
