The Civil War Medical Museum is a very educational and interesting museum that accurately describes the doctors, nurses, and types of medicine used during the Civil war. This museum was founded by a group of medical professionals in 1990 and their collections of medical artifacts eventually grew into an organization with 5 galleries and over 1,200 artifacts.
During the tour of the Civil War Medical Museum, you will experience 150 years of history, camp and hospital life, as well as the role of African Americans, women, and children during the Civil War. The information and lives of specific occupations such as caregivers, doctors, nurses, and soldiers are given in great detail. Having a visual aid, such as wax sculptures, are great educational tools because they help people connect better with the history when they can physically see it.
The Civil War Medical Museum is a great place to learn something new about this country’s history!
