Army Medical Department Museum Foundation
Log Number: ST-248572-OMS-20
The Army Medical Department Museum Foundation will utilize funds to construct a new entrance to the museum that would allow ease of public access and include an additional set of doors as an airlock to protect museum collections from humidity and other environmental fluctuations. The museum collection is the only one in the country focused on the comprehensive development of the army Medical Department from its founding in 1775 to the present. It includes over 14,000 artifacts from every conflict and operation, including Revolutionary War surgical tools, a restored railway ambulance car, and medical equipment made or modified “in theater” in Iraq. The project will be matched with $480,000 in non-federal share.
