I was passing through Kirksville and found a very interesting museum on the campus of the A.T. Still University. The museum had no admission charge and the exhibits were very well done. Dr. A.T. Still created the first school to teach Osteopathic Medicine.

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.

A must visit if in Kirksville - the home of Osteopathic Medicine. Especially if you are interested in the local history. Great collection assembled under watch of Jason Haxton, curator. Be sure to checkout the dissected human nervous system.

If you want a wonder reviewer of history of the world of osteopathy then Jason Haxton is your director. Awesome insight and ability to tell stories.

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.

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.

I really didn't know much about osteopathic before visiting this. The museum does a very good job of explaining the history of osteopathic and how it has changed through the times. There is just enough history and detail to keep you interested. The herb garden outside was interesting but it is under a lot of stress because of the summer with a number of plants dying or dead. Parking is tough but you can park in the hospital lot next door.
