Pandemics are events that change human history. They are much more than a health crisis; they are a human, economic, and social crisis. While they deeply affect the lives of millions of people, pandemics also have the potential to bring communities together.

Take a guided tour of our Human History Hall. Explore thought-provoking stories surrounding pandemics and infectious disease, from trade blankets to the 1950s polio epidemic, and discover how we are collecting to document the current COVID-19 pandemic.
