"Going Viral" Opening Night


Going Viral: Infection Through the Ages

Join us for exclusive after-hours access to the Mütter Museum's new exhibition, Going Viral: Infection Through the Ages! 

Throughout human history, people have tried to make sense of infectious diseases: Why did I get sick? Is something in my environment hurting me? How do diseases move from person to person? How do I get well? Going Viral examines the intersection of disease and environment through the lens of three major theories of infection—humoral, miasma, and germs—and encourages visitors to ask themselves: what’s making me sick?

Drinks and refreshments will be provided.
