Connect With Us

Starting Monday, March 25th, the National Museum of Dentistry will be closed to the public on Mondays for the summer. We will be utilizing these days to develop new exhibits and resources for the upcoming year, as well as utilizing this time to make our collection of over 40,000 objects and archival materials more accessible to the public. If you'd like to volunteer to help us with our collections or exhibitions on Mondays, please contact Patrick Cutter at 410-706-0600 or by visiting our Volunteer page.

The museum will remain open Tuesday through Friday during our normal operating hours, 9am-4pm, for walk-ins and group tours during this time.
