The National Museum of Health and Medicine inspires interest in and promotes the understanding of medicine—past, present, and future—with a special emphasis on tri-service American military medicine. As a National Historic Landmark recognized for its ongoing value to the health of the military and to the nation since 1862, the museum identifies, collects, and preserves important and unique resources to support a broad agenda of innovative exhibits, educational programs, and scientific, historical, and medical research. Designed by Philadelphia-based architecture firm KlingStubbins, the National Museum of Health and Medicine is a LEED Silver, 20,000-square-foot facility for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Built by Costello Construction, the single-story building features unique architectural elements and advanced construction technology.
