Sencer CDC Museum at CDC Headquarters. This unique museum features award-winning permanent and changing exhibitions that focus on a variety of public health topics, as well as the history of CDC.

The Global Health Odyssey Museum offers the following opportunities for groups of ten or more wishing to participate in a guided tour of our exhibits.

Permanent Collection
CDC Museum MicroscopeGlobal Symphony is an unparalleled multi-media installation highlighting the world of CDC and public health. Spanning 100 feet in length, the Global Symphony is more than just pleasing to the eye. Public health messages are communicated through intriguing narratives alternated with visual vignettes. The installation serves as an introduction to CDC and public health for all visitors.

Currently, the Global Symphony features three, three-minute stories that describe in depth CDC’s contributions to the elimination of polio, the investigation of Legionnaire’s disease, and the battle to stem the rise of obesity in the United States. The stories are complemented by a wide range of media pieces on public health topics - from HIV/AIDS to worker safety.

The Messengers sculpture is a large-scale serpentine stone sculpture by renowned artist Lameck Bonjisi of Zimbabwe, who died of AIDS in 2003. The Messengers is an example of Shona sculpture, reflecting traditional and contemporary Zimbabwean culture. The intention of the artist was to honor his ancestors and to represent the strength of families. CDC has chosen the work as a symbol of this facility’s mission – to educate all who visit about the interplay of public health, culture, and community.
