Schweitzer Hospital Museum


Housed in the former hospital building, the museum's guided tour will allow you to view photos, paintings and the impeccably arranged house and artefacts of Schweitzer and his wife. There's also a small zoo, the animals of which include descendants of Schweitzer's beloved pelican Parzival. You're also able to see the graves of Schweitzer, his wife and colleagues.
