Rainy day in Rouen? Look no further than this small and completely crazy museum. The justification for the place is that it was Flaubert's birthplace (his father was a leading surgeon in Rouen and lived here). Its main value is not the Flaubert connection but...More

The museum has a nice collection of history of the obstetrics and dental medicine. Also, it was interesting to learn about Flaubert and his life via fascinating old photos and private items presented in this museum. Recommended for small and private museums lovers...

I'm a big Flaubert fan--I went to Rouen to see where he came from--but the museum wasn't quite what I expected. It was very informative in terms of the development of medicine in France during the 19th C., but it wasn't quite what I had...More
