Museum of Quackery - Vague Recollection

This museum was located near the college I graduated from (St. Louis College of Pharmacy). It featured various displays of medical quackery along with a pair of Robert Wadlow's shoes and two skeletons riding a bicycle built for two (skeletons).

[Rudy Mack, 11/04/2000]

The museum folded in 1986. All its great exhibits were given to the St. Louis Science Center, which placed them in storage (though items may be loaned out for temporary exhibits). Included magnetic-wave helmets and belts, and infrared mittens.
