- Since 1934 the Musée de l'Assistance Publique has been housed in the Hôtel Miramion, which was built in the 17th century by François Mansard. This museum retraces the history of Parisian hospitals from the Middle Ages to the present. The history is depicted through many paintings, manuscripts and surgical instruments. A pharmacy has also been reproduced. This is truly an interesting trip through the years of medical history, which will make you appreciate some aspects of our life today. Admission is very reasonable.
