Description

Ever wonder how CDC scientists merge old-fashioned detective work with high-tech science to crack the cases of mystery diseases? Get the story by visiting the David J. Sencer CDC Museum's permanent exhibits.

Global Symphony is an unparalleled multi-media installation highlighting the world of the CDC and public health.

The Messengers sculpture is a large-scale serpentine stone sculpture by renowned artist Lameck Bonjisi of Zimbabwe, who died of AIDS in 2003. The piece is an example of Shona sculpture, reflecting traditional and contemporary Zimbabwean culture.

The Story of CDC traces the origins and early history of the CDC through 1976. The story is told through documents, photographs and objects such as an early 20th century quarantine sign.

The Center also presents changing exhibits to supplement its permanent installations.

Closed Federal Holidays.
