Mayo Clinic hits road with mobile exhibit

ROCHESTER, Minn. — The Mayo Clinic has taken to the road this summer with a mobile display to celebrate the clinic’s 150th anniversary.

The nearly 1,000-square-foot exhibit is housed in a 53-foot-long semi-trailer and will include three main sections that focus on the past, present and future of the Mayo Clinic. Features include an opportunity to take a photo with a 1915 photo of the Mayo Brothers, a display on the Mayo’s involvement in treating wounded soldiers and several other multimedia displays.

The tour began in April and will continue through October, making stops in more than 40 communities in the United States and Canada. The exhibit arrived in Rochester on Tuesday and will stay through Saturday. Upcoming Minnesota stops include Bloomington on Sunday and Mankato on Monday. There are North Dakota stops planned in Minot on July 23, Bismarck on July 25 and Grand Forks on July 28.

Each stop is free to the public. For specific locations and more information, go to
