The Int’l Museum Of Surgical Science’s Taiwan Section Room Re-Opening Reception and Fall Events

Taiwan Section Re-Opening Private Reception
IMSS hosts Taiwan Section Update and Unveiling

A handful of Fall Thursday’s ago, I attended the most wonderful event, tucked neatly along the luxe landscapes that tower the 1500 N. block of Lake Shore Drive in Chicago, IL.

The private invitation to attend the museum’s celebration of “The Taiwan Section room update” at 1524 N. Lake Shore Drive, led to my discovery of their intriguing multi-storied mansion, transformed into the International Museum Of Surgical Science (IMSS).

This awe-inspiring museum is the only one of its kind devoted to surgical science in North America.

If this comes as breaking news to your knowledge of Chicago museums, here’s a little background sourced from their website homepage:

The International Museum of Surgical Science, a division of the International College of Surgeons (ICS), maintains over 10,000 square feet of public galleries committed to the history of surgery, and an exquisite permanent collection of art and artifacts from the history of Medicine. The Museum supports its Mission through medically themed exhibitions and programs, in addition to a strong contemporary art exhibition program.”

As cool as the transitioning weather mists that breeze mere steps forward from Chicago’s Lake Michigan shoreline, IMSS puts on the ritz for their chic of surgical science-centric,  events.

Taiwan Section Celebration

Upon arrival, I upped the stairwell to confirm my signature presence for the evening.

The hospitality was as warm as the season’s weather, as I added my signature to a tabled banner among the distinguished company of attendees.  A beautful hostess for the evening handed me a Taiwan flag souvenir, adding a touch of charm. I am certain most every guest felt individually & collectively honored to be part of Int’l College Of Surgeons (at IMSS’s)  cultural, and evolutionary history.

I was offered a Taiwan flag souvenir, as I added my signature to a tabled banner among the distinguished company of attendees.

The activities for the occasion were tiered with salutes to the contributions, surgical science industry legacies, recognized, and honored guests which kicked off in the “Hall of Immortals room.”

IMSS members and guests ascended up the artful-deco stairways in tour-like procession to the third floor.

Upon reaching their visually  thematic corridor end; everyone paused for a commerative ribbon-cutting photo before unveiling the museum’s freshly curated, “TAIWAN SECTION” room.

The IMSS is more than a multi-sensory museum of historical surgical science industry articles, audio-visuals, antique instruments, and artifacts…its an event attraction. I recommend adding it as a list topper of wonder places to visit any season.
