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.

A very interesting museum for anyone interested in Osteopathic medicine and it's history. Not a huge museum, but easy to spend 30-60 minutes there. Parking is a bit of a problem as we found no spots just for the museum, but we did find a...More

Their exhibits were amazing. This is where osteopathic medicine began. Try to attend when one of the staff or docents can provide a tour, for they are very knowledgeable.
