Science, Medicine, and History!
Use your interest in these subjects as a volunteer at the Indiana Medical History Museum. As the oldest free-standing pathology laboratory in the nation, the museum offers the opportunity to use your talents in a truly unique environment. Housing an autopsy room, amphitheater, laboratories and brain specimens, the museum gives visitors a glimpse of the earliest research in scientific psychiatry where, in 1896, pathologists began the search for the physical causes of mental illness. The building is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. You can be a part of a fascinating museum by volunteering as a docent to help with tours, or as a researcher to assist with programming or artifacts.
Call Wednesday through Friday at (317) 635-7329 or contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org for volunteer information.
