An in-town gem

This unique museum is a must-visit for any Civil War enthusiast or person involved with medicine. The photographs of the patch-work fix-ups of the wounded soldiers are incredible--amazing what could be done so long ago. The museum is also easy to get to, with parking on the street or in several near-by garages.

It's kind of a dark museum, and it tells some rather unusual stories about how health was handled during a primitive war, by today's standards. So it can be a little depressing, but it is extremely informative and well done.
interesting small museum

One might not think civil war medicine would be interesting enough to devote an entire museum to it, but you would be wrong. This two floor museum has more than a dozen rooms. There is a mixture of historical objects, full size dioramas, and a lot of education signage. The gift shop is well stocked with interesting things to buy. If you find yourself in Frederick, check out this museum.
I Learned a Great Deal About The Civil War

This is a unique museum. Never have I seen the issue of medical casualties discussed or addressed in readings or documentaries. I know it sounds nerdy, but the information kept my attention and that of my teenagers.
