Dr. Samuel D. Harris National Museum of Dentistry
The Dr. Samuel D. Harris National Museum of Dentistry will be closed to the public Tuesday, 8/12, due to work on an upcoming exhibit. We apologize for any inconvenience, and look forward to seeing all your smiles when we reopen Wednesday, 8/13, when we return to our normal weekly schedule.
Sink your teeth into fun for all ages at the National Museum of Dentistry. See the amazing teeth feats of circus performer Penny Wilson, marvel at George Washington’s choppers (they’re not made of wood, after all!), sing along to vintage toothpaste commercials, and discover fascinating hands-on exhibitions about the power of a healthy smile.
