  • My mom and I went and it was pretty interesting. Lots of cool specimens and old equipment. Dr. Braun gave out tour. Don't be afraid to ask questions! There are 6 or 7 rooms to explore.  more »
  • My wife and I are both in the medical field, so this museum was right up our ally. It is one of the original medical school buildings in the country and houses historic pieces from the past 100 years....  more »

  • This museum is amazing! Someone who is interested in any area of the medical field or psychology, or just loves the neat, different and rather unique hidden places will love it here. The guided tour allows for enough time to explore the room and look at items for a few minutes after the guide explains the purpose of the room and the highlighted areas. The museum contained both items donated and items origional to the pathology building apart of what was once Central State Hospital. I would definitely recommend and return!
  • Cool place to visit. Artifacts are very well preserved and the staff is very intelligent in this area.
  • If you like history check this place out. It seems pricey for what you get but the money goes to preserve the building so it doesn't get torn down.
  • Staff was very knowledgeable and the artifacts were interesting. If you're looking for something to do, put this place on your list.
  • I recommend visiting when in town. The artifacts are cool and the staff is very nice.

Where to stay in Indianapolis

With limited public transportation in the city, those traveling without a car should consider the location of their accommodations carefully. To stay within walking distance of Indianapolis’ best restaurants and bars, look for a hotel or apartment rental in the arty Mass Ave or Broad Ripple neighborhoods. Downtown lodgings are often more expensive, but provide easy access to Indy’s best-known attractions for those on vacation. Bed and breakfasts in the city’s residential areas provide a healthy dose of Midwestern charm.
