Mission Statement

Our mission is to offer an educational center where exhibits and collections portray history and historical documents provide resources for education, and support programs that address public health issues today.

Description

The Public Health Museum in Massachusetts is a non-profit educational and cultural museum dedicated to preserving records and artifacts of our nation's history in public health. The museum has the distinction of being the first of its kind in the nation and remains the most extensive. Incorporated in 1990, it has been open to the public since 1994. Massachusetts has a rich history of leadership and notable firsts in the birth of our nation and this is no exception in the field of public health: the first vital statistics; the oldest continuously operating medical society; the first sustained state board of health; the oldest public health association; the first communicable disease surveillance system, among many others. Our mission is to offer an educational center where exhibits and collections portray history and historical documents provide resources for education, and support programs that address public health issues today.
