Curator's Tour of the Warren Anatomical Museum
The Warren Anatomical Museum is one of the last surviving anatomy and pathology museum collections in the United States. In 1847, Harvard anatomist and surgeon John Collins Warren founded the Museum to preserve and classify specimens and models needed for teaching. Until 1999, the Museum was in the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology. It is now an integral part of the Countway Library's Center for the History of Medicine.
Join Museum Curator Dominic Hall for a guided tour of the Museum holdings on exhibit in the Countway Library, including the skull, life cast, and tamping iron of Phineas Gage.
- In conjunction with the April 4th symposium, Human Tissue Ethics in Anatomy, Past and Present: From Bodies to Tissues to Data, the April 5th tour will highlight wet specimens.
- Our May 10th tour will feature Harvard School of Dental Medicine objects in the Museum's collection.
Tour meets in the front lobby of the Countway Library. Registration is limited to 15.
