One of the oldest hospitals in the world, St Bartholomew’s, or Bart’s, was founded in 1123, and has cared for the sick and injured ever since. 

The Museum tells this inspiring story. Highlights include: historic surgical instruments, sculpture, medieval archives, and unique works of art, including spectacular paintings by William Hogarth.
