Public Hospital Museum

Otherwise known as the “Public Hospital for Persons of Insane and Disordered Minds,” this is clearly not an ordinary museum with dinosaurs and globes. This establishment was the very first of its kind in North America in the 1700s; a treatment asylum for the mentally disturbed and occasionally hostile. Inside the hospital you will find containment cells, medications, clothing and devices used in attempt to control the mad hundreds of years ago. This is one museum where you will want to read everything you come across as the revelations may be surprisingly shocking and gruesome enough that you will never complain about going to the doctor again.
