As a former hospital, this museum was very interesting and instructional on the state of the medical sciences in the pre-modern period. Instruments used for surgery probably killed more people than they saved, and the tiny palanquins which must have been primitive ambulances were fascinating. However, the real point of coming here was to see the amazing collection of paintings by Hans Memling, ranging from the jewel-like reliquary of St. Ursula to the 'Mystical Marriage of St. Catherine', a huge triptych that is one of the most breath-taking art works in Europe. I don't know why this isn't more famous because it should be.
