History Lectures and traveling exhibits of museum artifacts can be schedule by contacting Museum at or calling 660.626.2359


The Healer Within You Programs are curriculum-integrated activities provided online by the Museum that are not otherwise available to local schools. They are set up to serve children in Kindergarten through Grade 8. The Museum identified curriculum integration points using the 2008 Approved State of Missouri Curriculum for K-8 (Department of Education, State of Missouri).

Upon request the Museum will offer assistance with using the Kindergarten through Grade 8, “Healer Within You” Curriculum.

Museum staff give tours to varied groups, including school children, college students, and senior citizens, as well as friends of the osteopathic profession and ATSU-KCOM applicants. Tours can be adapted to the particular interests of the tour group (e.g., local history, health and medicine, medical instruments).

All programs are free, but space is limited and reservations are required. Programs are also subject to change.
