- One must be a fox in order to recognize traps, and a lion to frighten off wolves. Machiavelli Niccolo
Visit the Southern California Medical Museum
A small medical museum with a recreated doctor's office.
A small collection of medical artifacts, medical photography and a medical library dating back to 1843.
The jewel of the collection is a recreated doctor’s office from the 1920s, complete with vintage medicines, roll-top desk, microscope and medical bag.
A lecture held in the museum entitled, “Quackery, or Not?” displayed a curious cure-all from the same era, a metal cylinder known as the Oxygenator. Though it cured nothing, it was true to its name: it had nothing inside it but air.
