The Indiana Medical History Museum interprets scientific medicine of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The museum is house in the Old Pathology Building, a nineteen-room facility constructed in 1896 on the grounds of a former Central State Hospital for the Insane. The building includes a 100-seat amphitheater, autopsy room, medical library, anatomical museum, three clinical laboratories and a photography laboratory all to support study and research on the physical causes of mental disease. The laboratories represent the beginning of scientific psychiatry and modern medicine. The building is the oldest free standing pathology facility in the nation and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The museum also boasts a medicinal plant garden and a 1950's doctor's office exhibit.
