History of Medicine
National Institutes of Health Headquarters
The DeWitt Stetten, Jr., Museum of Medical Research was established at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda in 1986 as a part of the NIH centennial observance. The Stetten Museum preserves and interprets through physical and virtual exhibits the material culture of the scientific work of the NIH. The Museum collects instruments important to scientific research, especially instruments and technologies developed at the NIH. The Museum also collects non-scientific objects related to the general history of the NIH, including architectural artifacts, artwork, and clothing. Most exhibits are located in NIH's Building 10, the Warren Grant Magnuson Clinical Center.
