Coronavirus: Events may be cancelled and venues closed at short notice, you are advised to check on their websites before making a trip.

QMUL’s Pathology Museum, based at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, is opening its doors to public visitors of all ages this afternoon. Join us on this unique occasion for a chance to view the museum's specimens over the course of an afternoon, particularly if you'd like to draw them, and to see the museum's current art exhibition 'Saving Faces' (all for only £5)
We won't be providing art materials, but there will be chairs, tea and coffee and a chance for you to enjoy the space and examine the specimens at your leisure this half-term.
Only the ground floor  - the historical collection - is open to the public and as usual photographs are not allowed of the specimens or 'pots' directly. However feel free to bring pencils, pens, charcoals, paints - you name it - and sit in peace for a few hours in this Grade II listed space.

In addition to the pathology collection, there is an art exhibition on the walls of the museum which can be viewed during the afternoon. 'Saving Faces' by Mark Gilbert includes images of facial surgery commisioned by Professor Iain Hutchison, who founded the charity 'Saving Faces'

FAQs
What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?
See map below
Are there any toilets?
Yes, on the same floor as the Pathology Museum, in the Clinical Skills Centre
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
No - will have your name on the list provided by Eventbrite
Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?
Yes - as long as the amount of people on the ticket matches the amount who have arrived, it doesn't matter who they are
Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?
Yes. See above question.
Is there disabled access?
Information on our disabled access is on this page of the website. There are SEVEN steps which lead up to the museum, from the landing, which need to be taken into consideration regarding access.
Is there a cloakroom?
No – there is nowhere to hang coats or place bags. 
Is it ok to come with a large group?
Yes – it’s absolutely fine to come in a group, as long as everyone has purchased a ticket.
Will there be guided tours?
No – the technical curator, Carla Valentine, is still in the process of conserving the collection (which includes around 5000 specimens.) but all the information regarding the specimens is on the shelves alongside them and information about the museum is on the museum’s WEBSITE. This open day is simply a chance to view the specimens at your leisure, rather than for a brief half an hour before our usual scheduled events in the autumn and winter.
How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
In the event that you have a question not answered by this page, our organiser profile (below) or our WEBSITE, particularly the FAQ page, feel free to email [email protected]
