Hi Kathleen, the Paris museum is beautiful; it's an art museum as much as a medical museum, maybe because the head of the museum, Mme Marie-Veronique Clin, has an art history/art museum background; see more about it here: http://www.corporeality.net/museion/2008/04/20/a-medical-history-museum-turned-art-gallery/
Best,
Thomas
