Join other Rockville Science Supporters as we go on a tour of the National Museum of Health and Medicine. The museum was established during the Civil War as the Army Medical Museum, a center for the collection of specimens for research in military medicine and surgery. The NMHM embodies five collections consisting of about 25 million artifacts, including 5,000 skeletal specimens, 8,000 preserved organs, 12,000 items of medical equipment, an archive of historic medical documents, and collections related to neuroanatomy and developmental anatomy. The museum’s most famous artifacts relate to the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln on April 14, 1865.
