  • I thoroughly enjoyed my visit here. There's lots of history and information about the progress of Hansen's disease cures,and the history of this property. The curator and staff were very helpful with questions and the display exhibits. I definitely plan on going back with my family. My great- grandfather was the dentist there shown in the photos I shared. Dr. Bernard Prejean
  • Well done museum with a great deal of information and many displays. I'm in the medical field (nurse practitioner) and I found this museum truly amazing. The building and grounds are really nice as well. Yes, the museum's theme is a bit unusual, but it's well worth making the trek to visit for anyone interested in a fascinating part of USA history.
