Did you know that you can stand on the very site of the first successful public demonstration of anesthesia?

Our tour begins in Mass General’s Ether Dome, the hospital’s 19th-century surgical amphitheater (and home to one Egyptian mummy). You’ll proceed to the Paul S. Russell, MD Museum of Medical History and Innovation, where you can learn about the hospital’s more than two centuries of history and about present-day innovation, from targeted cancer therapies to immune tolerance of transplanted organs.

Cost: Free. Ages 13+.

All MGH tours and events are full. Please join us for other events!
