For those who missed this special performance the first time around…
Back by popular demand, the International Museum of Surgical Science is pleased to present Dr. Pembroke's Anatomical Theatre. Enter the anatomical theatre of Dr. James D. Pembroke, a doctor and surgeon working in 18th century Britain, and watch as he performs a gruesome surgery on a live patient. Period tools will be used and discussed in this demonstration which is not for the faint of heart. Dare to ask the doctor questions about his techniques after his surgery.
Doors open at 6:30pm, performance begins at 7:00pm. Enjoy refreshments and browse the Museum after the performance until 8:30pm.
Recommended for ages 18 and up. Accessible entrance and seating available.
