Developed as a teaching museum for students of medicine, its fascinating collections, including bone and tissue specimens, artefacts and works of art, have also been open to the public since 1832, making it one of Scotland’s oldest Museums. The History of Surgery Museum traces the story of surgery in Scotland from 1505 to the present day through objects, images and artworks. The Dental History section incorporates the outstanding object and art collection of Menzies Campbell, and is rated as one of the top three in Britain. In 2010, the upper gallery of The History of Surgery Museum was transformed into a temporary exhibition space with ‘Skin Deep’ as the first in a series of new subjects. Popular exhibitions include The Real Sherlock Homes and the story of Burke and Hare. We also run a programme of events and highlight tours, more information can be found on our webpage. « less
