Museum of Osteopathic Medicine gives inside look to history of osteopathics

If you have an interest in osteopathic medicine and the history of A.T. Still University, a local museum will give you an inside look at how the practice and university came to be.

The Museum of Osteopathic Medicine at A.T. Still University in Kirksville offers visitors a variety of knowledge on both the history of osteopathics and Dr. Still's impact on the university.

The historic buildings of Dr. A.T. Still's log cabin and the original two-room classroom are preserved in the museum. There are also numerous distinctive exhibits that highlight osteopathy's heritage. Online materials are also available if visitors are interested in doing more research on their own.

"We'd like you to come and take advantage of the Museum of Osteopathic Medicine located in Kirksville at the ATSU campus, and if you come, we have online materials that you can research about Dr. Still's unpublished writings. We also have services with images and photographs that also include the history of Kirksville because the two are tied together," said Jason Haxton, Museum of Osteopathic Medicine Director.

After the New Year, the museum will be open Monday, Wednesday and Friday 8:00a.m. - 5:00p.m., Tuesday and Thursday 8:00a.m. - 7p.m., and Saturday's noon to 4p.m.
