Let's move the International Museum of Surgical Science to Grant Park. (Alternately: the Hamilton Woodtype Museum.)
"This comprehensive exhibit begins with the birth of orthopedics with Nicolas Andry in the 17th century and include discoveries and milestones in orthopedic surgery, as well as the evolution of amputation methods and prosthesis design from ancient times to the present. Featured in the exhibit are historical artifacts from the Museum’s extensive collection, including ancient bone-cutting tools, Civil War amputation kits, and 19th-century splints and artificial limbs. These objects are accompanied by archival manuscripts and artworks in several media that highlight orthopedic and prosthetic pioneers and their great discoveries and inventions."
Oh, like you'd prefer the BIG Backyard.
