William A. Neal Museum of the Health Sciences



The WVU Museum of the Health Sciences is an interdisciplinary museum located on the Health Sciences Campus at West Virginia University. Dedicated in October 2022, the museum strives to preserve and display stories and artifacts of cultural, artistic, historical, and scientific importance to the medical history of West Virginia and its flagship university. Efforts to found this museum began in 2017 under the direction of William Neal, M.D., a professor emeritus and retired pediatric cardiologist at WVU with a passion for history. With Dr. Neal’s vision as well as the support of WVU leadership, the museum has grown from concept to reality—a million dollar institution that will inspire visitors, students, and faculty alike. Exhibitions range from historical medical equipment, such as Civil War surgical instruments, to modern healthcare technology like neurostimulation and telemedicine.
