University of Manchester Museum of Medicine and Health collections
Event code: M387
Thu 25 July, 14:00–16:00

The Museum of Medicine and Health contains a vast and diverse array of artefacts and archives dating from the seventeenth to the twentieth century which supports and illustrates our understanding of the history of medicine, health and disease. The Museum collects and conserves artefacts and archives relevant to the discipline and practice of medicine and health and is used as a teaching and research resource for members of staff, students and the public. We offer a programme of talks in which historians or practitioners talk about the significance of an object in our collection. Recently we have assisted the Medical Research Council and the Museum of Science and Industry with exhibitions.

The Museum does not currently have permanent display space so our open afternoon is an opportunity for interested delegates to view our collection. If there are specific artefacts or archives which you are interested in viewing then let us know in advance. Alternatively, please feel free to just come and have a browse. Copies of the Museum catalogue can be obtained from Katherine Andrews, Museum Assistant, at katherine.andrews@manchester.ac.uk.

If you would like to visit, please email Katherine at the above address to arrange this. We look forward to seeing you.
