  Chimborazo Medical Museum
by b1bob

This museum is where the famous Chimborazo Hospital once was. Between 1861-65, thousands of Confederate soldiers were treated here. The Medical Museum tells the story of the patients, hospital, and doctors who worked there. I went here during a 7th grade school field trip (1981) and it was eye-opening to learn how much medicine had advanced in the 120 intervening years.

Hours: 9am-5pm daily; free admission.

Address: 3215 E. Broad Street, Richmond, VA 23223
