Dentistry is usually a subject most people don't care to even think about. This exhibit is a testament to human technological advancement. Visitors can see how far we've progressed after viewing early 19th Century drills, forceps, and other instruments, which would be considered barbarous by today's standards. Another display was created courtesy of Edgar 'Painless' Parker, a colorful West Coast dentist. Pulling the tooth was usually the only way to cure a toothache at one time. A bucket containing the thousands of teeth he pulled remains as a monument to his gentle methods.

The All Wars Memorial to Colored Soldiers and Sailors was commissioned in 1927 by Pennsylvania's African-American legislator, Samuel Beecher Hart. Created by Swiss sculptor J. Otto Schweizer, the memorial was to be a tribute to African American war heroes, but was originally relegated to a remote location in Fairmount Park, where it remained virtually unseen for many years. The Philadelphia Arts Jury and the Committee to Restore and Relocate lobbied elected officials until it was finally relocated to its current location in November 1994.
