As mentioned in the previous post, the Musée du Service de Santé des Armées (Museum of the Army Medical Corps) is located next to the Church of the Val-de-Grâce. The museum traces its origins back to the 19th century. At first merely an anatomy collection for teaching purposes, it gradually grew as a result of bequests to become the repository of army medical corps history.
