The NIH Stetten Museum collection includes scientific and clinical instruments that were either used in ground-breaking research at the NIH, were invented at the NIH, or were commonly used in laboratories or clinics at the NIH. The collection also contains non-scientific artifacts that speak to life at NIH including clothing, artwork, models, and even toys.
We are always collecting and adding to the collection. Right now, we are focusing on documenting the past 20 years, so keep checking back.
