    Great museum on surgical history, including deconstructed body systems, surgical history, death masks, and old surgical instruments. Not for the weak hearted!

    Gift store has big selection of very very cool dna models. They also have exhibits about the evolution/history of surgical procedures. Offbeat and fun...

    There is a real body spliced into 1 inch pieces on the top floor of this building - pretty crazy! It's free to visit on Tuesdays, so definitely stop in then. Pretty neat spot to check out. :)
