The birthplace of Gustave Flaubert is a must for lovers of French literature. However many people might find the medical history section quite macabre.
There are many fascinating objects, including a bed built for six patients. There are medical instruments used for horrific procedures, and a stretched-out mummified foetus. A heart-rending display tells the sad story of thousands of babies abandoned in Rouen in the nineteenth century.
I am very pleased I went to this museum, but I wasn't able to stay as long as I had intended.
