Located in the historical heart of the Medical University of South Carolina campus, the Macaulay Museum of Dental History was established in 1975 by Dr. Neill W. Macaulay for whom the museum is named. Dr. Macaulay was an avid historian of dental practice and during his lifetime amassed a large collection of dental memorabilia. Dr. Macaulay’s collection is one of the few remaining dental museums in the country and showcases the dental profession including practice and education.
