The Palmer Family and Chiropractic History Museum focuses on the history of the chiropractic profession with specific emphasis on the role of the Palmer family and Palmer College. Also, in connection with the Museum is the Palmer Residence (home of BJ, Mabel and Dave Palmer) which showcases them both as Chiropractic professionals as well as prominent and influential local community members. Tours of the home are by appointment aside from a regular scheduled time each Friday at 11:10 a.m. and can be made by calling 563-884-5714.

The Palmer Family and Chiropractic History Museum will have a select artifact on display in the main atrium of the Vickie Ann Palmer Hall that visitors may guess at the identity and year of for a prize as they visit the rest of the museum displays. The prize for closest guess is a DVD of the first season of the television show "Mysteries at the Museum."
