Royal London Hospital Museum


About the Royal London Hospital Museum

The museum covers the history of the hospital since its foundation in 1740 and the wider history of medicine in the East End.

It includes works of art, surgical instruments, medical and nursing equipment, uniforms, medals, documents and books.

There is a forensic medicine section which includes original material on Jack the Ripper, Dr Crippen and the Christie murders. There are also displays on Joseph Merrick (the 'Elephant Man') and former Hospital nurse Edith Cavell.

The museum is located in the crypt of a 19th-century church behind the hospital.
