National Museum of Dentistry

See amazing teeth feats, marvel at George Washington’s choppers (they’re not made of wood, after all!), sing along to vintage toothpaste commercials, and discover fascinating hands-on exhibits about the power of a healthy smile.

The Museum is renowned for its collection of dental treasures from the legendary to the whimsical, from Queen Victoria’s dental instruments to cartoon character toothbrushes featuring Fred Flintstone and Mickey Mouse.

Kids can dress up like a dentist and give their friends a ‘check up,’ see how much spit we make in a day, and discover the secrets of the mysterious narwhal and its 6-foot-long tooth!

An Affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, this one-of-a-kind museum is located on the campus of the University of Maryland Baltimore—home of the world’s first dental school.

Regular Museum admission is $7 for adults, $5 for seniors, and students with ID, $3 for children age 3-19; and free for age 2 & under, Museum members, and active military personnel & their immediate family. The Museum is open Wednesday–Saturday 10 a.m.–4 p.m. and Sunday 1–4 p.m.
