While visiting some friends in Kirksville, we stopped at the Museum of Osteopathic medicine. They describe the differences between traditional medicine and this field, have many old instruments on display and I really liked one of the oldest photos of the graduating class that has SO many women in it. Worth stopping to see while in Kirksville.

Small, but interesting museum, describing the early history of osteopathic medicine. The late 19th century was mostly frontier medicine, without formal training, and it is interesting how another school grew out of that chaos, with the goal of advancing the science of medicine. Things have evolved substantially since the early days, of course, but the history is neat. Many artifacts are on display, from those early pioneers. Plan on staying about an hour. Free admission.

We attended as part of a field trip. The museum is interesting but the tour guides brought it to a whole new level. Easily spent an hour there and loved the variety we discussed.

This museum offers a great display of the beginnings in America of osteopathy, and and the life of its founder, A.T. Still. Plan to spend more than an hour here.
