I have toured this Museum several times. It is informative and free. The location is interesting as it is located in the tunnel that connects Sanford Hospital to the Van DeMark Building on the other side of 18th street.

Very interesting to see the medical tools of another era...and yet, I recognized items that are still being used in today's medicine. Price is right - free! and helpful volunteers(?) to answer questions.
