Established in 2010, the CHP’s Museum of Psychology showcases and interprets documents, media, and artifacts from the Center’s vast special collections. Featuring both temporary and permanent exhibits, the Museum aims to bring the history of psychology to life by providing visitors with an opportunity to explore what it means to be human.
The CHP museum is home to the simulated shock generator used in Stanley Milgram's studies of obedience. Milgram was surprised to find that 65% of his participants fully complied with an experimenter’s directives to deliver shocks to an innocent victim. Visit the museum to learn more!
