       The Indiana Medical History Museum is located in the Old Pathology Building on the grounds of the former Central State Hospital on the near west side of Indianapolis. The museum represents the beginning of scientific psychiatry and modern medicine while the building itself is the oldest surviving pathology facility in the nation and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

     The museum maintains a collection of scientific artifacts from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in a completely authentic setting. Constructed in 1895 and inaugurated in 1896, the nineteen-room Pathological Department Building, as it was then called, is equipped with three clinical laboratories, a photography lab, teaching amphitheatre, autopsy room, and library.

     Explore this site to learn more about the Indiana Medical History Museum as well as Indiana's medical heritage.  The museum also offers an extensive list of links to other websites relating to medical history, science education and health careers.
