Hunterian MuseumThe Hunterian Museum within the Royal College of Surgeons boasts a host of enlightening, permanent and temporary, galleries and exhibitions. Housed in the college, the Hunterian Museum collection is open to all and was amassed over four centuries by a cast of colourful characters including John Hunter (1728-1793). It offers a fascinating mix of comparative anatomy and pathology specimens. There are complete skeletons, bones, skulls and teeth, dried preparations, corrosion casts and wax teaching models. Visitors can also examine historical and modern surgical and dental instruments and technologies, as well as paintings, drawings and sculpture. Also within the college, the Wellcome Museums of Anatomy and Pathology are teaching collections, available to qualified practitioners and students of medicine, nursing and related subjects.
