X-Ray Museum

Excellent museum with lots of old x-ray equipment and interactive displays. Doesn't look like many people come to check it out. The guestbook was almost empty.

[Alex, 10/09/2017]

The world's only x-ray museum would benefit from better public outreach: it has a cryptic official name ("ASRT Museum"), it's inside the headquarters of the American Society of Radiologic Technologists, and it can be viewed by appointment only. But it does welcome the public, and its visitors are not x-rayed.
