Check out objects from our collection on loan to the Indiana Medical History Museum for this exhibit Small Doses: Medicine in Miniature, which runs from January 12 through April 27. Miniature highlights include Marion Haerle’s Doctor’s Office (on loan from the artist) and medical tools and books from the Estate of Janet King. Visitors will discover a surprise as well; there is a miniature version of a medical object next to the full-size version that belongs to the Indiana Medical History Museum’s permanent collection. Let us know when you find it!
