Fantastic museum for anyone even mildly interested in the history of medicine. As a final year Operating Department Practitioner student I thoroughly enjoyed having a glimpse into what theatres were like in the 'olden days'.

If you're even mildly interested in the history of medicine this small museum is worth the visit. But beware the only way to visit is up a very narrow spiral staircase. We happened to visit when a large school group of high school children were there and enjoyed the lecture that was delivered. It was a richer experience because of that!

Old operating theatre set off a hospital and used for surgeries on women. The room, the medical devices used in surgeries. All worth the visit!!!

Visited this quirky museum with my grandson as part of his project at school- really fascinating and kept our interest. A talk and fake display of surgery was going on at the time of our visit which just added to the attraction. It really makes you appreciate the nhs and what we have in this Country. Also the history of medicine and what patients had to go through in times gone by. Would definitely recommend a visit if nearby.

Great little museum on old medical practices. Nice for a short visit. They have good explanatory plaques for some of the exhibits and it has a nice atmospheric feel.
