Glore Psychiatric Museum
There's nothing like learning about medicine of the past to make us grateful for today's doctors. The Glore Psychiatric Museum illustrates how far health care has come by taking guests on a fascinating—and sometimes gruesome—journey into State Lunatic Asylum No. 2, which opened in 1874. Through interactive exhibits and artifacts, the museum, which as been featured on PBS and the Discovery Channel, shows what daily life at the hospital was like over the course of its history. In addition to hospital paraphernalia such as confinement boxes and uniforms, the Glore showcases artwork created by those suffering from mental-health disorders, and includes pottery, paintings, drawings, and needlework.

“Museum was larger than I expected, definitely recommend setting aside 2 hours so you are not rushed through it. Don't forget to visit the Morgue in the basement. ;)”
“It's really a fascinating place to visit; and you will have a better appreciation of modern medical advances and technology afterwards!”
