I visited this museum several years ago when it was at Walter Reed. I saw they had opened in a new building and location. I did not have a car, but it seemed easy enough to get to using the Metro Red Line. I was staying at Dupont Circle so it was about a 30-45 minute ride on the Metro to get to the stop in Silver Spring, MD. The website indicated it was between a 1-2 mile walk from the Metro to the museum depending on what station you stopped at. It was quite a long walk that went through a residential neighborhood, that might not have been so bad if it wasn't the middle of August. When I got to the museum I was quite surprise at how small it was, the picture on the website makes it looks much larger. The museum is free and is only three rooms of exhibits. However, they have some very unique artifacts. They have the bullet that killed Abraham Lincoln as well as pieces of his skull and hair, they have a human hairball, and a megacolon. If you are interested in the history of military medicine and also the oddities of the human body this is the place for you. I was able to take a bus back from the museum to the Metro Station, but it only runs certain times of day. I don't know if I would make the trek again if I didn't have a car, but I am glad I made the trip to see it.
