If you prefer to pay by check, please send your research request, and a check for $10 made out to The NMCWM, to:

Director of Research
The National Museum of Civil War Medicine

P.O. Box 470
Frederick, MD 21701

Your donation will help fund the operation of our Research Center. Since the NMCWM is classified as a charitable organization in accordance with Internal Revenue Code 501 (c) (3), your donation may be tax-deductible.  Contact your financial advisor for details.

Please note: the Museum does not accept phone requests.  Also, please do not ask for general information– there is so much available that we cannot comply with such a request. See the Education & Research section of our website for suggested resources.
