What travelers say:

This Surgery Museum did not try to become the Field Museum, but it does lack a certain quality to make the museum more fascinating. This lack of things is the level of interactivity. Most museums are for people to stand and watch and read. The information read by these visitors is indeed fascinating, but if there are more ways to attract visitors, it may be more impressive. Unless you work in the medical field, I will not list this on your tourist attractions; however, if you are a Chicago looking for new things to learn, this museum is worth a try.
