4.0
#7 of 13 in Museums in Rouen
Delve into the development of medical technology and practices at Musee Flaubert et d'Histoire de la Medecine, which was also the birthplace of famed French writer Gustave Flaubert. Explore the museum, including recreated living quarters from the 18th century, medical oddities, and Flaubert's birth room. Despite the museum's name, the focus lies on medical technology from the 18th and 19th centuries rather than the author's life. You'll have the chance to see unorthodox medical instruments, stuffed mannequins, and even the mummified heads of several people executed by hanging. Don't miss the full-sized and restored apothecary, which gives you a glimpse into the medical industry's past. A visit to Musee Flaubert et d'Histoire de la Medecine represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Rouen route maker tool to plot your vacation.
