William P. Didusch Center for Urologic History

Visited and am happy to report that the museum is not only still open, but has expanded to include an exhibit that examines the history of male sexual performance. The highlight of which was seeing the penile silicone implants from the 1980s.

[Grant, 02/23/2008]

The "Sexual Perception and Performance" exhibit went up in 2006, but still appears to be available.

William P. Didusch Center for Urologic History

The William P. Didusch Center for Urologic History has a new home inside the Corporate Headquarters of the American Urological Association in Linthicum, MD. No doubt the Tourist and Convention Bureau was ecstatic to hear that news! The exhibits are visible from the main doors shortly after you enter the building.

All the beloved prods, tubes, irrigators, evacuators and extractors are on display behind glass. There is also a room dedicated to quack medicine of the late 1800s and early 1900s. Of course, the highlight was to see the pineapple sized staghorn calculus - the kidney stone from hell.

Oddly enough, there was not a soul to be seen anywhere during the hour or so I was there.

Me and a buddy hopped out of a car, walked back and forth over and over trying to find the place and then found an empty building with outlines where the letters for Urological Museum were. Looks like it's closed.

William Pl Didusch Urological Museum

I am wondering if you are familiar with the piquant, if groin-clenching-in-sympathy, pleasures of the William Pl Didusch Urological Museum. This is an understandably obscure museum in the national headquarters of the American Urological Assoc. hosts a painful collection of instruments thru the ages used for the art and science of urology (check out the cystoscopes -- frighteningly *large* instruments used to access the male bladder via the penis). There are also many illuminating illustrations, books, pertaining to human plumbing. Don't miss the wall of past AUA presidents... Open by appointment only.

[Michelle Gienow, 10/16/1996]

August 2005 - Rob Perris reports: "Stopped by the Museum of Urology on August 8, 2005. The building was locked up tight and there was a large real estate broker's sign stating that the building was for sale."
