The Bath VA Complex can be seen from I-86 (route 17). The complex has a hospital, housing, medical staff buildings and a museum. The Veterans Administration Medical Center Historical Museum houses medical artifacts used by the U.S. military from the Revolutionary War (1776) to the present conflicts (2003). There is also a military burial ground with headstones that date back to the early 1800's.

On the whole, this is a pretty "sterile" (dull) museum unless you are a doctor or nurse.
The gravestones in the cemetery are interesting for their designs and inscriptions.

You can do the museum in one-half hour easily and add in another half-hour for the cemetery.

Address: 76 veterans avenue
Directions: take I-86 (route 17) to exit 38, go west at end of the exit ramp and go down veterans avenue, look for the signs when you enter the VA complex (the museum is a large white building)

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
