Event Information

History Center of Olmsted County

, MN


The Mayo Clinic is home to a large—and now largely unknown—collection of medical wax models, but if you visited the Mayo Medical Museum on a school field trip as a child, you will remember seeing these fascinating artifacts! Created by in-house artists from c.1924 to 1983, they were used by Mayo physicians to illustrate medical conditions and surgical procedures at medical meetings around the country. This presentation will feature the history of the models and how they influenced the development of the Mayo Medical Museum in the mid- to late Twentieth Century  Join us virtually for this fascinating look into the Mayo Clinic and one of their exciting collections.
