The « Hôpital Notre-Dame à la Rose » will host a dynamic exhibition entitled « From Ambroise Paré to Louis Pasteur – A Large Cabinet of Scientific Curiosities » over a long period.
Organised thanks to a couple of passionate, anonymous collectors, this exhibition is installed along the usual visit path.
More than 200 objects providing a remarkable illustration of the development of medicine and pharmacy from the 16th to the 19th century are thus presented in the cloisters and rooms of the « Hôpital Notre-Dame à la Rose ».
These objects are curious, challenging, original and attest above all to a period where craftsmen and doctors combined their knowledge to advance medical and scientific techniques. We could for that matter have subtitled this exhibition « Art in Human Hands » because all these instruments are as beautiful as they are disquieting and provide a glimpse into an age when the dexterity of surgeons was rivalled only by that of cutlers and makers of scientific instruments.
The exhibitions are open from Tuesday to Friday from 2 pm to 6 pm and on Saturday, Sunday and Public Holidays from 2 pm to 6.30 pm.
“From Ambroise Paré to Louis Pasteur” (until the 30th November 2018)
