Southern California Medical Museum

A museum dedicated to historical medical devices and artifacts. It includes a life-sized recreation of a 1910-1930s doctor's office, and many bizarre medical items from the past, including kits for leech therapy and bloodletting, an electroshock therapy machine, shelves of obsolete patent medicine and much, much more.

The Medical Museum is located in the conference room of the San Bernardino County Medical Society. Call first because if there is a conference in session the museum cannot be viewed.
