Attention nurses, doctors, hospice workers, hospital cafeteria staff, and all those working in healthcare—this free-admission appreciation day is for you! Simply bring your work ID/badge from a healthcare office or facility to the MSV and enjoy free, site-wide admission (includes ORIGAMI IN THE GARDEN).
Explore the galleries and gardens, and see Wild, Wonderful & Brave—a new digital exhibition of powerful documentary photographs and interviews that tells the stories of the healthcare workers in West Virginia’s Eastern Panhandle during the COVID-19 pandemic. The digital exhibition is on view in the galleries; special showings will take place in the Reception Hall during Healthcare Workers Appreciation Day.
At 2 p.m. MSV Curator of Collections Nick Powers will share objects from the Museum’s Collection related to the history of medicine in the Valley, including a traveling doctor’s bag used in Frederick County more than 75 years ago and a medicine cabinet dating to the early 1900s.
Free with healthcare ID/badge. Registration not required. Free admission offer applies to healthcare workers only; not applicable to family members (gallery admission is free to ages 12 & under; fees apply for those ages 5+ accompanying healthcare workers for the gardens and ORIGAMI IN THE GARDEN).
Wild, Wonderful & Brave is sponsored at the MSV by West Virginia University’s Eastern Campus and WVU Medicine.
