Obscura Day 2016: Inside the Archives of the Mobile Medical Museum

Join us for an exclusive presentation of rare books and artifacts from the largest medical collection in the Southeast.

The Mobile Medical Museum houses the largest medical collection in the Southeast, showcasing the medically obsolete, the primitive and the innovative, the bizarre and the commonplace--all of which have contributed, in small or large ways, to modern medicine.

Join us on Obscura Day for a very special tour of the Mobile Medical Museum led by Executive Director Daryn Glassbrook, including an exclusive presentation of rarely seen books, artifacts and documents from the museum's archives. From skeletons to wartime surgical kits, we'll have a chance to explore over 300 years of local and worldwide medical history.

Saturday, April 16th, 1:00pm -2:00pm
Ticket Cost: $7.50
