Take a trip back in time and visit this museum. It is located in a wonderful old building on the beautiful grounds of the Tewksbury State Hospital. From the old switch board to an iron lung - you can see the amazing advances in Public Health.

Small museum with a niche theme, but worth the trip. I'd recommend a drive around the hospital campus as well. Only $5 admission is a bargain, and you might get an interesting tour.
