Intl. Museum of Surgical Science

By: Matt Cunanan

Great Location! In Downtown Chicago!

The Museum of Surgical Science is located along Lake Shore Dr. in an old mansion with a marvelous view of Lake Michigan. Eleanor Robinson Countiss had this house constructed in 1917 to house her and her family. The house was designed to resemble a 17th Century Chateau in Versailles that Louis XVI had built. The building itself is already an attraction plus the museum. The International Museum of Surgical Science is a listed Chicago Landmark.
