If Medical London and Chris Hilton’s Insight talk have developed a taste for the capital’s medical past, then make sure you visit the re-launched London Museums of Health and Medicine website.

There you’ll find information on over 20 museums and libraries (including Wellcome Collection and the Wellcome Library), dedicated in their own way to exploring the health and wellbeing of London through time. The site offers general summaries on the institutions listed, and details of their latest news and events, and specific details for Family Historians and on Group Visits.

To quote the website:

From rare plants, heart surgery, illuminated manuscripts, and helicopter emergency services, to pharmacies, false teeth and Freud, the exhibits in these museums help to place the history and development of medicine and health care in its widest context. Along the way, they provide some remarkable insights into an age-long campaign against illness, disease and injury.

From the Alexander Fleming Laboratory Museum to the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries, plan your visit(s) now.
