International Museum of Surgical Science

Hotels near International Museum of Surgical Science, Chicago, United States .

In addition to all of the big, obvious museums in Chicago, there are a number of smaller museums with more of a niche audience and quirky collection. One such museum that falls into the latter category is The International Museum of Surgical Science, which is actually quite fascinating.

For those aspiring doctors, as well as anyone with even a vague interest in medicine, this is a must-see museum. Founded in 1954 by a doctor and operated by The International College of Surgeons, the museum is an extensive look at the field of medicine from the past until the very present. Both eastern and western methods of medicine are explored.

In addition to the permanent collection, which offers some really interesting insight into how your body works and how doctors have thought it worked for hundreds of years, there are a number of traveling and temporary exhibits. Usually the theme is a contemporary issue or concern, like Diabetes: A Global Epidemic and You and Plastic Surgery: Form and Function.

For art buffs, The International Museum of Surgical Science houses an extensive collection of anatomical drawings from all different countries and eras that alone are worth the cost of admission.

Located in Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood, The International Museum of Surgical Science is closed on Sunday and Monday from October through April, and open Tuesday through Saturday, ten until four. From May through September, the museum is also open on Sundays.

A number of hotels are a sort distance from the museum, including The Claridge Hotel Chicago, The Park View Hotel, and The Ambassador East Hotel.
