New York Academy of Medicine's Rare Book Room Series

Explore the Academy's incredible collections in this intimate, after-hours, three-part series.

In this three-part series of Wednesday evening sessions throughout 2017, we'll explore The New York Academy of Medicine's collections in the intimate after-hours setting of its beautiful rare book room, guided by two of its stewards.

Register for a chance to be enlightened by early magicians, alchemists, philosophers, scientists, mathematicians, physicians, and midwives. You'll leave with the wisdoms that they penned, including the ancient secrets of how to turn metal into gold, what fruit to eat to delay labor, and how the Zodiac Man guided medical practices.

Presented by Atlas Obscura at The New York Academy of Medicine
1216 5th Avenue, New York, NY 10029
Wednesday evenings at 6:30pm
$35 per session or $100 for the entire series
