Despite it being local I still haven't visited it. I blame my squeamish son who refuses to go; and the idea of visiting museums without one's offspring just seems somehow...wrong.
I don't have that problem since my 11 y.o son will happily spend all day at a technical museum with me, while the womenfolk (Gawd bless 'em) get bored in an hour. Still, a mate has this solution: borrow a child for the immoral purpose of attending said museum (ask parent's permission first). Suggest an instructive and educational visit to an institution devoted to raising the standards of the Lower Orders. Then take them to the museum (and in your case) drool over the gruesome antique medical instruments, two headed foetuses in jars, etc.
