One of my favourite places ever. A beautiful collection, with a respectful and peaceful atmosphere, filled with history and incredible and educational specimens. Exceptional displays that I have never seen elsewhere in any anatomical museums.
A very interesting museum to visit if it is open. Only one room but a lot of material is housed there, with knowledgeable and friendly staff to help you out and explain some of the history behind the items). There's a lot to learn and depending on when you go, it's not very busy which is a plus.
Different and interesting..... maybe not the best day out for the kids though !!😂
What a great experience! Don't expect too much entertainment, it is just one large room with a lot of facinating, but sparsely labeled objects. We spent about 30 minutes there, and I am glad we did. Entrance is free, and make sure it is indeed open before you go there!
Great exhibits detailing the history of medicine in Edinburgh. The death masks are very interesting, as is the story of the demise of Burke and Hare.
