An event every week that begins at 9:00 am on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, repeating until August 23, 2019

Commemorating the 100th anniversary of the worldwide Spanish Flu epidemic that made its way to rural Anderson County by spring of 1919, this exhibit will explore the cultural and medical repercussions of this 20th Century epidemic and celebrate the medical advances in all areas of the health care industry since then.

Artifacts on display include vintage or antique items involving the dental, medical, ocular, chiropractic, and laboratory occupations, and show how medical practices have changed over the years. A collection of 18th and 19th century medical tools and a mock up of an early operating room are centerpieces of the exhibit.

Hands-on displays will allow visitors to try out vintage medical equipment, use an ultraviolet light to learn how germs are spread, and grow their own petri dishes of bacteria, bringing the world of the unseen into focus.

Contact Abigail Burden at [email protected] or call 864-338-7400.  The museum is open Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays 9:00 to 2:00.
