About Indiana Medical History Museum
Located on the grounds of the former Central State Hospital in the Old Pathology Building — the oldest surviving pathology facility in the nation — the Indiana Medical Museum was first opened in 1969. With its original equipment left intact, the museum brings the state's medical history to life through exhibits and guided tours. Don’t miss the Doctor’s Office exhibit, set up as if it’s c1910, the medicinal herb garden, or the portrait of Sarah Bolton, Indiana’s first poet who farmed this piece of land with her husband from the 1820-40s. The couple sold the land to the state for the construction of the hospital.
