Inside, Galvani maintains a laboratory on the third floor, where he studies the plague and the rats that spread it. There are workstations for different purposes throughout the area, and Galvani's desk is also on this floor. The doctor also has a secret room behind a bookshelf in his lab, where he must keep his plague rat research due to the ban on vivisection.
Dr. Galvani keeps his specimens in the pantry on the first floor. Also on the first floor are the servants' quarters, the kitchen (which is divided into two sections - one for food preparation and the other for cooking), and the foyer, containing glass cases with various objects on display.
On the second floor is Galvani's apartment, consisting of a bedroom, a living and dining room, and a few smaller rooms off to the side. In the dining room, there is also a small safe in the corner.
The building is featured in two side objectives, both concerning Slackjaw and his Bottle Street Gang. Corvo Attano has the chance to visit the building during the missions High Overseer Campbell and House of Pleasure.
- In the mission House of Pleasure, two guards patrol Galvani's Lab. If Corvo opens the secret door while one stands in the way, he will be crushed to death by the mechanism.
- Corvo can be crushed by the secret door mechanism if he stands in the way of the bookshelf.
- Plaques with the words "Offices of Dr. Galvani" can be seen along John Clavering Boulevard outside of the mansion, as well as in the entryway before entering the building proper.
- In the mission High Overseer Campbell, during a conversation on the third floor, the fiancé of Ms. Benton asks her if she has ever seen Dr. Galvani open the new safe downstairs, implying that the safe is a recent addition to the manor.
- During the House of Pleasure mission, rain can be heard falling near the first floor windows, despite there being no rain outside at that time.
- This is left over from the previous mission, when it is raining outside.
