The Burns Archive in Midtown is a Massive Medical History Photography Museum

The Burns Archive in Murray Hill boasts over 1 million photographs of historical subjects, and most prominently, early medical history.

From the birth of photography through the atomic age, The Burns Archive with over one million historic photographs is best known for providing photographic evidence of forgotten, unseen and disquieting aspects of history. The cornerstone of The Burns Archive is its unparalleled collection of early medical photography, but it is also renowned for its iconic images depicting the darker side of life: Death, Disease, Disaster, Mayhem, Crime, Racism, Revolution and War.
