Medical Memories P.A. Day Program  |  November 24, 2017

Miss this year's Summer Family Program? Participants ages 6-12 can join us in November to wrap up Canada's 150th birthday.

Handle medical artefacts and learn about treatments for various ailments by asking different "professionals" for their medical advice -- some advice will be scientifically sound and some will be quackery! Create and take home your own home remedy to a common ailment from the 1800s.

Location: Museum of Health Care, 32 George Street
