The Exhibition Program at the National Library of Medicine strives to promote greater understanding and awareness of how the past informs the present and can shape the future.
Understand the past/Imagine the future
By creating exhibitions about the social and cultural history of science and medicine, we encourage visitors of all ages to learn more about themselves and their communities. We seek to stimulate people’s enthusiasm for history and to nurture young professionals in history, the health professions, education, and museum studies.
