The Dittrick staff will be on hand to welcome SAA visitors and answer their questions. The museum galleries are designed for self-guided tours, allowing visitors to wander at their leisure. Exhibits offer a look at the history of midwifery and childbirth, diagnostic medicine, the emergence of the germ theory of disease and its acceptance among medical personnel, as well as the impact such changes had on the treatment of disease. The Dittrick Museum also holds the largest collection of historic contraceptive devices, which can be seen in the Skuy Gallery of the history of contraception in America. Several temporary exhibits are scheduled for this occasion, including a look at Cleveland’s  World War I medical unit.

Walk-ins are welcome during open house hours.
