Collections Tour – Medical Collection

Watch Kristina Hampton, Collections Manager at the Saint Louis Science Center, as she talks about the medical collection the Science Center houses. Explore examples of machines, devices, and medicines in our medical collection that were marketed as cures for all sorts of diseases and ailments. Learn why these hoaxes didn’t work, and the effect they actually had on the human body.
