The Ether Dome

The Paul S. Russell, MD Museum of Medical History and Innovation presents the 200-year evolution of health care and medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital.

The visit will include a guided tour of the Ether Dome, a partly guided tour of the museum and time to explore, as well as a show-and-tell with museum staff of archival documents or artifacts not currently on display.
