Where and Tips
This unassuming museum offers a fantastic overview of medical research between the 1850's and 1990's. Originally, Indiana Hospital for the Insane, the institution was a hub for education and pathology. What's so unique are the amount of original instruments and the near-perfect preservation of the building itself. Personally, I think it's a great place to go during October to celebrate Halloween season.
