To Do: Smallpox Exhibit at the National Constitution Center
Calling all history buffs! Tonight at the National Constitution Center, you can check out a popup medical exhibit on the impact of smallpox on our history. Dr. Robert Hicks, director of the Mütter Museum/Historical Medical Library of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia, will be showcasing a collection of artifacts, including early books, models, instruments, and specimens related to smallpox. You might even learn some interesting factoids you can dazzle your friends with later—because who doesn’t like a good smallpox anecdote at a cocktail party?
Admission to the exhibit is free once you pay to get into the National Constitution Center. But guess what? Tonight, admission’s only $5, thanks to the center’s Thursday-evening $5 after 5 series, which runs through the summer. The exhibit will be on display from 5 to 8 p.m.
National Constitution Center, 525 Arch St., 5 to 8 p.m., $5.
