“Strange Cases and Painful Peculiarities” will take visitors through the darkened galleries of the museum and examine the Civil War’s grizzly side on Friday, October 27th.
On this lantern-led tour of Frederick’s most haunted building, visitors will hear ghastly true tales from the Civil War – stories of grave robbers, experimental surgery, battlefield horrors, and more. The National Museum of Civil War Medicine at 48 E. Patrick Street in Downtown Frederick is located in the Carty Building, a structure that hosted embalmers during the American Civil War and served as an undertaking business for more than a century.
Tours will take place at 6 PM, 7 PM, and 8 PM. Tickets are $15 per person. Purchase tickets early as these tours will sell out.
