Surgeons Hall Museum Edinburgh

The Museum of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh houses one of the largest and most historic collections of surgical pathology material in the United Kingdom. Developed as a teaching museum for students of medicine it has also been open to the general public since 1832. Making is Scotland's oldest museum.

 

Visitors to Surgeons' Hall can, for the first time, take home a full colour illustrated guide to the main collections held in the RCSEd Museum. The new 200 page 'anthology' brings together stunning photographs of specimens and artefacts in the College collections and sets them alongside poems and written extracts from books and documents connected to the Museum's history. I am reliably informed the Baguette Express, next dooor, does not use the spare body parts..
