Abstract

To the Editor:—  I would like to add some worthwhile sites in European museums of interest to physicians in addition to those outlined by Dr. Frederick Stenn in The Journal, March 24, page 1090. In Paris, the very modern Palais de la Découverte has an interesting section on medicine. It is located on the Avenue F. D. Roosevelt. Visitors to Germany might be interested in the Deutsches-Gesundheits Museum, Ostmerheimer Strasse 200 in Cologne, West Germany. This museum is the manufacturer of the well-known transparent man and woman. They are temporarily lacking a museum building, but the workshops are well worth visiting. The Dresden Hygiene Museum has been completely rebuilt and with the art treasures returned to Dresden might be well worth a visit. Airplane travelers arriving at or leaving from Prestwick, Scotland, and having time on their hands in Glasgow will find it very worthwhile to visit the Hunterian Museum
