Brochure highlights: The Dr. Samuel D. Harris National Museum of Dentistry.
"Discover the exciting world of teeth at the only museum of its kind, the National Museum of Dentistry. In the exhibition '32 Terrific Teeth,' experience the amazing feats of the 'iron jaw' performer, play a tune on the tooth jukebox, and view George Washington's 'not-so-wooden' teeth."
Also has a jukebox that plays old toothpaste jingles. It has one of only four surviving lower sets of George Washington's false teeth (they're made of ivory, not wood) and Queen Victoria's personal set of gold-plated dental tools.[Roadsideamerica.com Team, 01/01/2000]
