Musée Dupuytren, Paris, France

The Musée Dupuytren is a medical museum in Paris, France. It was established in 1835 and features an amazing collection of waxes and teratological specimens, all with beautiful antique labels. Their website appears to be down at the moment, but you can find out more about the museum here. Also, I uploaded a really poor-quality video of a walk through an assortment of the pathological waxes here and an overview of the pathological specimens here.

All these photo (and video) were taken on a visit back in 2003.

I have seen the museum in photos before, but must say I had never seen the last one - what is supposed to be wrong with the female genitalia...?
