This unusual museum is located in the North Wing of Saint Bartholomew’s Hospital and explores the stories of the building and its amazing staff have witnessed over the past few hundred years. Various videos and sound recordings tell stories of the hospital and staff from years ago, teaching visitors about the lives of individuals like a 13th century sister, 15th century apprentice surgeon, and a nurse in 1948. Original documents such as the agreement between Henry VIII and the city of London to reestablish the hospital can also be viewed in the archives section of the museum. If you're interested in Western medical history and the history of London itself, then this should be right at home on your London trip plan and will no doubt illuminate history like nothing else in London.
*The museum is staffed by volunteers and their opening hours may be subject to change at short notice; you may want to check opening times before planning a visit by telephoning 020 3465 5798.
