Walking into the David J. Sencer Center for Disease Control Museum in Atlanta, Georgia feels like stepping into a scene from The Walking Dead. Namely the first season finale, when the gang discovered the depressing science behind the zombie apocalypse… and then this building got blown up. While you can’t expect an exhibition on brain eaters anytime soon, the CDC does have a way of making learning fun again, whether it’s through scare-tactic VD posters from the 1960s, vintage hospital shots, grotesque drawings of guinea worms, or ads from creative anti-smoking campaigns. The CDC Museum is free to visit, but leave your zombie-killing weapons at home; the security here is as intense as you’d imagine.
