Current Exhibits

Our exhibits are designed to educate visitors of differing interest levels, from the casual visitor to the serious student of medical history.

The exhibits range in topic from the early frontier experience and the life of osteopathy’s founder Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, to the formative years of the osteopathic medical profession, its first school, and their subsequent development throughout the late nineteenth–and twentieth–centuries.

  • A.T. Still Museum collage

    The collections of the Museum of Osteopathic Medicine include more than 80,000 objects, photographs, documents, and books dating from the early 1800s to the present (focused mainly on 1870–1940). The core of the collection consists of artifacts from A. T. Still's professional and private life, most of them donated by Dr. Still's daughter, Blanche Laughlin, and members of her family.

    Since the founding of the Museum in 1934, other family members, DOs, and Museum supporters have donated many additional artifacts that reflect the ongoing history of the osteopathic profession. The research collections of the International Center for Osteopathic History (ICOH) also include many former holdings of the A.T. Still Memorial Library, for which the Museum assumed responsibility in 1997.
