The Holmes Medical Museum is located above the drug store in Baldwin County’s first hospital, which served the community from 1936-1958. Many of the items on display are the original medical artifacts including surgical instruments, operating room machinery and a human skeleton. The interior of the museum is like a time capsule remaining practically unchanged from the time it served as the area’s first hospital. This fascinating museum will definitely take you back in time.
