Informative Public Health Museum
This Smithsonian affiliate museum on the campus of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention teaches visitors about the importance of public health and the organization's purpose. The museum opened in 1996 in coordination with the Centennial Olympics hosted in Atlanta. It features exhibits on the health crises after Sept. 11, the AIDS epidemic, food safety, and other interesting topics.
