Our tour guide, Lorenzo, was an absolute delight. He seemed to love his job and kept even our 16 year old granddaughter fully engaged. Well done, and you will gasp at some of what he has to tell you. The art of medicine in the...More

This little museum was great and the tour guide was awesome. It was very interesting to see what medicine was like in the 1800's and what tools they had to work with. If you like history this is a must stop.

The museum was alright. It had neat objects that were used and the guide was very kind, but the main focus was on herbal remedies and minor procedures that were not anything you would not already assume, aside from the herbal remedies used.
