New Hunterian Museum displays

The Hunterian Museum

From 16th May 2023

The Hunterian Museum, named after the 18th century surgeon and anatomist John Hunter (1728-1793), reopened at the Royal College of Surgeons of England’s headquarters at Lincoln’s Inn Fields in central London in May 2023.

The £4.6 million museum development includes the display of over 2,000 anatomical preparations from Hunter’s original collection, alongside instruments, equipment, models, paintings and archive material, which trace the history of surgery from ancient times to the latest robot-assisted operations. The Museum includes England’s largest public display of human anatomy.
