Description

This activity has been cancelled.

Established during the Civil War as the Army Medical Museum, this center houses an impressive collection of specimens for research in military medicine and surgery. In addition to the hundreds of displays and exhibits, one of the most popular is the collection of items from President Lincoln's assassination in April 1865. They include fragments of the slain president's skull, pieces of hair, part of the doctor's blood-stained shirt cuff, and reproductions of Lincoln's face and hands-even the lead ball removed from his head, labeled simply"The Bullet That Took the Presidents Life." Shocking, yet compelling - this museum provides an unforgettable journey through history and the medical breakthroughs that have saved millions of lives around the world. Moderate walking required.
