The only real drawback to seeing this museum is that you have to make a reservation for a specific time, but if you can deal with that you'll be rewarded with an approximately hour-long tour of this small but really cool medical museum.
You must initially be accompanied by the tour guide, but after the tour you are free to go back through again on your own (although that might have been offered to me because they weren't busy at the time?). The tour guide is friendly and very knowledgeable, which really adds to the experience. You get the feeling that she really loves doing this.
Photography is not allowed. That's too bad, because there are so many neat and even one-of-a-kind items that are very picture-worthy.
You'll see x-ray tubes, large paper mache anatomical models, an iron lung, the first artificial heart valve, a cool collection of old spectacles, dental and optical equipment, items from witch doctors, and a lot more.
Tip: Ask to see the really old autopsy photo in the first room; a little unnerving, but unique, and it's easy to miss.
The cost as of August 2012 was about $5 per person. Definitely worth it, and worth an hour of your time. Would highly recommend this place!
