The ISTM is pleased to have arranged for several special, behind-the-scene tour of valuable items relating to the history of medicine at the American Museum of American History of the Smithsonian Museums in Washington, D.C.  The museum has been collecting medical objects from the 18th to the 21st century, including medical objects from outside of the Americas which date back to the Romans.  Their objects range from an 18th cnetury surgical kit used during the American Revolution to vaccinators from the 19th century to the first artificial heart implanted in a human.  There is a strong collection relating to public health and vaccination of special interest to ISTM members and CISTM delegates.

There is no cost for the tour though transportation to and from the Museum is on your own.  Each tour is limited to 35 people.  We expect the tours will sell out, so register soon if you wish to attend.
