Pathology Museum Open Afternoon

Pathology Museum Open Afternoon

This event has finished Took place on: Thursday, 16th Aug 2018

QMUL’s Pathology Museum, based at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, is opening its doors to public visitors of all ages this afternoon (between 1pm and 4pm)

The pathology museum is not normally open to the public in a drop-in manner as it is a university teaching facility in use by medical students. It is also undergoing continuous repair and conservation. Often - particularly during the autumn and winter - the museum hosts scheduled events and seminars which are outside of office hours, based around particular topics, and require the purchase of a ticket for entry. Entrance fees go to the museum for its upkeep.

This open afternoon is different: it is merely a chance to drop into the museum, with the family for example, and view the specimens on the ground floor at your leisure. It is also a chance to see the conservation of the collection occurring, as it does on a day-to-day basis, when the space isn’t being used for teaching and exams. There is no minimum age for visitors although parents are advised to use their discretion: prams and pushchairs are not recommended in the museum and there is no disabled access (more information HERE. There is also nowhere for prams to be left outside the museum.)

In addition to the pathology collection, there is an art exhibition on the walls of the museum which can be viewed during the afternoon. ‘Beautiful Corpse’ by Mia-Jane Harris is a series of ethereal photographs of human remains in the form of wet specimens.

It is FREE but booking a free timeslot - of one hour - is essential. Any donations will be appreciated and they will go directly to the upkeep of the museum, which is unfunded.

Cost: Free of Charge
