Massachusetts Archives & Commonwealth Museum

Commonwealth Museum exhibits some interesting documents and legal records belonging to the State. The museum's education department offers lectures encouraging the use of material from the archives. A special exhibit entitled 'Highway to the Past' is dedicated to the archeology of the Big Dig. Many of the artifacts uncovered during the digging are also on display.

Paul S. Russell, MD Museum of Medical History & Innovation

The Paul S. Russell, MD Museum of Medical History and Innovation at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) explores three centuries of fascinating medical discovery though interactive exhibits and showcases. The museum is named after a contemporary physician considered a pioneer of transplant surgery. The decision to name the museum for a current innovator is indicative of the project's goal - to inspire the public regarding the future of modern medicine. However, the museum does not fail to provide visitors with a comprehensive look at medicine's past. An operating chair from 1854 gives viewers a taste of the rudimentary nature of early medical procedure, while surgical tools and apothecary kits complete with ether from the 19th Century shows the evolution of a more humane approach to patient care.
