  • Here are some miles away in Washington, DC. Museum of health care related, so rare I think. Pathology tissue caused by disease and war as well as exhibited in the real would be a boon to education professionals.

  • Fascinating museum. Definitely be prepared to have a strong stomach. The museum is very well organized and all artifacts are tactfully displayed, but the sheer number of human remains on display squicked me out a little. I still learned a lot and would definitely suggest this museum to anyone with an interest in the history of medicine.
  • Unique exhibits of amputated leg of Major General Sickles hit by a cannon ball at Gettysburg. The bullet removed from Abraham Lincoln and some of the medical instruments used in his surgery and fragments of his bone. Largest display of medical rarities in the United States. Quiet and easy to view.
  • Amazing exhibits. Would love to see it expanded in the near future.
  • Excellent medical museum - quirky and in the middle of nowhere. Quite small so not a whole day outing, but good for a couple of hours of interest.
  • Definitely has a lot of interesting stuff but not very interactive for kids. However, if you're interested in old battle wounds and broken bones there are tons here.
