Hunterian Museum, Royal College of Surgeons


THE HUNTERIAN MUSEUM IS CLOSED UNTIL AUTUMN 2020

The Hunterian Museum collections, brought together over four centuries by a cast of colourful characters including John Hunter (1728-1793), are a fascinating mix of comparative anatomy and pathology specimens; complete skeletons, bones, skulls and teeth; dried preparations, corrosion casts and wax teaching models; historical surgical and dental instruments together with modern surgical instruments and technologies; as well as paintings, drawings and sculpture.

The museum is now closed for a major redevelopment of the RCS building, with all collections removed from the site by end of Summer 2017.

We look forward to re-opening in Autumn 2020 with a new building and exciting new spaces that will allow greater public access for all visitors to discover the past, present and future of surgery.
