  • I must see when passing through Foley, Alabama! It has one of the best representative collection of medical equipment of days past that I've ever seen. It is a lot larger then one would expect. Has interesting items at every turn with good visibility and explanation. The docent was extremely knowledgeable about the museum and the area. Adding to this he was very friendly and enjoyed a good conversation!
  • This is a true step back to early medical care and treatment. This hospital has been frozen in time. For the most part, all original instruments are still there. Sort of creepy and fascinating at the same time. Must see museum.
