An extremely interesting museum full of information and visuals. Not for the faint of heart, but provides an important key to how we have treated the "insane" in the past.

This is a great museum, filled with so much sad history. It's incredibly informative while maintaining respect for those throughout history who suffered at the hands of others. Well worth the time and very reasonably priced.

Oh my!!! I wish I had allowed more time to explore this museum!!!! I had no idea that they also have collections of Native American Tribes and African artifacts. The Museum is well organized, full of amazing displays and information, for a small fee. Their gift shop and employees are superb also!!! I will be back to spend several hours and woyld definitely recommend it!!!

It was such an informational trip! Extremely interesting knowing that this occurred in our past to treat the mental illnesses of patients. To be able to see the tolls used in person was unbelievable. We were there for two hours and still wasn’t able to read everything.

This was a Very informative and interesting museum with great displays of actual psychiatric equipment. The crude and horrific treatment methods were explained and shown so we can have both a visual and mental perception of what took place in a more barbaric time treating mental patients. We went away appreciating how much science has come and reflecting on just how demoralizing and sad the past was for those patients. Great museum!

About 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 has 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.
