The Leonard R. Ingersoll Physics Museum was fully established in 1918 and was known at the time as the Historical museum, making it one of the first museums of its kind in the country that focused on physics.

The Ingersoll Physics Museum is free to public and runs on donations. Our exhibits give our guests a hands-on experience of physical concepts ranging from mechanics to modern physics in a demonstrational kid-friendly environment. Our 1500sf museum consists of over 65 exhibits with some rotating in and out each year.

In conjunction to our museum, you can find photos of the Nobel Prize Winners in Physics from 1901-1993, as well as many historical instruments on display along the corridors of Chamberlin Hall.
