One of the most oldest pathology centers in the US, the Indiana Medical History Museum is a hidden gem of science and medicine.

What makes this museum such an interesting a little bit creepy place is that everything looks the same as it was last used a hundred years ago. Only its not dusty. :) The furniture, the jars, the medical appliances, utensils, everything is arranged in a way that it gives you the feeling that any minute a doctor might walk in and start dealing with patients. It is amazing.

3045 W Vermont St, Indianapolis, IN 46222, USA
