If you are interested in learning more about diseases you must visit the CDC. There is a lot of work being done at the CDC which has been well documented in the museum. This museum is free to visit.

Went through both the ongoing and special exhibits and really gained an appreciation of CDC and public health generally. Parking may be limited, and going through security before parking added to the sense of importance of the CDC mission.

This is a really nice display of the establishment of the public health initiatives in the US (and globally)! Interesting facts, interactive and relatable exhibits. You have to go through security, so bring picture ID, but it's worth a stop while you're in town.
