Inside the Archives of the Mobile Medical Museum

Delve into 300+ years of local and worldwide medical history at the largest medical collection in the Southeast.

The Mobile Medical Museum's collections include thousands of medical artifacts, photographs and documents from the past 300 years. Through these remarkable collections, the Museum reveals the highs and lows in the evolution of the art and science of health care.

Attendees will have a chance to view the museum's permanent and special exhibits, including an iron lung, human skulls and skeletons, antique surgical and x-ray equipment, and eerily lifelike pathological models in glass jars.
