First time I visited was when I was applying to Harvard Medical School. The receptionist in the admissions office suggested I go upstairs to see it while I was waiting-- no doubt to gauge my reaction upon my return. Maybe it was a first admission screening test. PS, I graduated from HMS in 1984.

Never heard of this place before. Gives me a reason to visit Boston again.

Nah, it was pretty cool, actually, in a creepy sort of way. Very 19th century in its attitude toward such things.

It’s upstairs in what used to be called Building A at Harvard Medical School, but now has some rich guy’s name attached to it.
