National Museum of Civil War Medicine

First opened in 1996, the National Museum of Civil War Medicine is a constellation of three sites comprising an exhibit-based experience in Frederick, Maryland, an outdoor classroom at the Pry Field Hospital on Antietam National Battlefield, and Clara Barton’s Missing Soldiers Office in Washington, DC.

Their goal is to explore the successes and failures we have inherited from the most destructive conflict in American history. Through outreach programs, school tours, lectures, living history, and general visitation to our sites, the museum hopes to convey the importance of medical education, the consequences of war, and give audiences the tools to apply these lessons in the modern world.
