Many of the specimens at the Maude Abbott Medical Museum were collected in the 1870’s by William Osler, a pathologist at the Montreal General Hospital.  He used these specimens to teach medical school students about human organs and the diseases that affected them.  A small number of skeletal specimens from soldiers who died during the American Civil War can also be viewed at the museum. These displays are accompanied by poems written by Walt Whitman, a patient of Dr. Osler, describing his wartime experience.

The Maude Abbott Medical Museum is open two days a week and by appointment.

For more information check out the Maude Abbott Medical Museum website.
