Stopped in this little old hospital that is now a medical museum. They have old instruments, wheelchairs, medicines, equipment, books, etc. Thank goodness we have better ways of doing things these days! Very interesting if you like medical things and history.

This place is so interesting. It is an old hospital with equipment, rooms and offices as they were when it was a working hospital. Free admission so it’s definitely worth the price.

Such a comprehensive collection of medical equipment, diagnostic tools, and information about medical exams and procedures many years ago. This is one of the best small museums that I have seen with this kind of display.

As a paramedic who works in a hospital emergency room, I really enjoyed this museum. The historical information, antiquated medical equipment, and tour of the hospital was interesting. Even with the medical community's technological advancement of equipment and procedures, some things have not changed. Many...More
