Open House

By | Events and Visits

Open House London has established itself in recent years as one of the city’s most popular events. A celebration of the diversity of the capital’s buildings, the event allows free access to many buildings normally closed to the public.

Open House 2009 takes this place this weekend – 18th and 19th September – with over 700 buildings participating. A good number of these sites have a link to the collections of the Wellcome Library or to History of Medicine in general, but we’ll take this opportunity to flag up fellow members of the (London Museums of Health and Medicine network which are taking part), and the opportunity to view the Pioneer Health Centre in Peckham (built in the 1930s, converted to private dwellings in 2000, and the subject of a previous post on this Blog).
