Cummings Center for the History of Psychology

This museum contains many famous pieces of psychology research. Some of the historical artifacts include clothing and a cell door from the Stanford Prison Experiment, the Bobo doll from Albert Bandura's behavioral modeling experiment, and the real (fake) shock box used in the Milgram obedience experiment.

There are many interactive portions of the museum (actual tests used in the past) as well as temporary exhibits. Expect to spend a few hours here.
