  • We arrived at 20 minutes after the hour and learned that tours are only offered on the hour. Therefore, we left and came back. Other reviewers have listed in detail what can be seen. Great tour guide....  more »

  • Small but very professionally done museum. Annie Anderson and the staff are top notch and have done a wonderful job preserving and presenting the history of rural medicine in NC and elsewhere. Highly recommended.
  • Great place to learn how different and simple things were in those days. The tour is well worth it and so interesting. Had a great time and thank everyone should visit the COUNTRY DR. MUSEUM.
  • A little gem tucked away in the tiny Town of Bailey. Not to be missed!
  • We've passed the signs for this museum for years, and we finally decided to stop. It is much more interesting (and larger) than we expected. The docent was very informative, explaining and answering questions about everything from the live leeches to a demo on how doctors made their own pills, and from the medicinal herb garden to the iron lung. And after the museum, take the receipt to a local café for a discount on a tasty and​ reasonably priced lunch. Well worth the trip!
  • It is Bailey's claim to fame with the ONLY country doctors museum in the world!!!!!!! It is very educational to walk through the museum and see all the old told anyone gadgets that old time country doctors used! It is something everyone should go see! The buildings they used are the actual doctors houses where they lived!
