International Museum of Surgical Science

The International Museum of Surgical Science is a museum in Chicago, Illinois’s Gold Coast neighborhood. The International College of Surgeons runs it, and it includes exhibits on various aspects of Eastern and Western medicine. Dr. Max Thorek founded it in 1954. The exhibits at the museum are organized by theme or surgical discipline. Photographs, paintings and drawings, sculptures, medical equipment, skeletons, medical specimens, and historic artifacts are among the displays. The library houses over 5,000 rare medical texts. The museum was originally built for Chicago socialite Eleanor Robinson Countiss Whiting, who died in 1931, and is housed in a 1917 mansion designed by Howard Van Doren Shaw as a replica of a building at Versailles. In 1950, the International College of Surgeons purchased the building. In an effort to broaden its appeal to visitors, the museum has hosted a number of contemporary art exhibitions in addition to displaying medical artifacts since 1998. In 2010, there were 20,000 visitors per year; by 2013, this had increased to between 25,000 and 30,000. Grant Park is also a very beautiful place to visit.
