Going Viral: Infection Through the Ages

NOW OPEN!

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?

The Mütter Museum helps the public appreciate the mysteries and beauty of the human body while understanding the history of diagnosis and treatment of disease.
