Horror & Fascination at the Glore Psychiatric Museum | History Traveler Episode 216


One of the most fascinating things to study is the mind. Of equal interest is the history of how mental health has been treated. We’re in St. Joseph, MO at the Glore Psychiatric Museum which sits on the site of the former State Lunatic Asylum #2 and now serves to educate people on mental illness and it’s treatments. There wasn’t a single thing in this museum that we didn’t find interesting. Definitely one to watch until the end!
