What a great interactive Museum for children and adults! Very cool collections of antique dental instruments and even George Washington's denture! We were surprised to have enjoyed it so much.

This is a best kept secret in the city I am sure...I would assume it has limited appeal unless you're a dentist, dental student or have a fascination with teeth...but I have been told there are some interesting things to see

We went - it's high tech - it's fun - but disturbing at the same time. All I kept thinking is that these dentists have some money. As the museum was a costly endeavor and well put together, but in the end it is still...More

The museum is by appointment only, so we called in advance to set up a time. Nice, self-guided tour through the museum. Lots of interactive exhibits to make it kid friendly. A nice stop if you're looking for a low key activity.
