Health Physics Historical Instrumentation Museum
ORAU is home to the largest collection of historical health physics instruments.
The ORAU Health Physics Historical Instrumentation Museum chronicles the scientific and commercial history of radioactivity and radiation. It has been deemed the official repository for historical radiological instruments by the Health Physics Society, and the Society has been generous in its financial support for the purchase of items.
The collection is the property of the not-for-profit ORAU Foundation. It is located at our health physics training facility in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Unless noted otherwise, the website only features items actually in the collection.
