Medical History Museum open evening

From the Curator of Museum Services at the University of Dundee : 

As many of you know, this year we have been creating a new permanent display for the Tayside Medical History Museum in the School of Medicine at Ninewells Hospital. We will be having an open evening to show off the results on Wednesday 7th December from 5pm to 6.30pm.    

This will include a short talk at 5.30pm by curator Matthew Jarron on Dundee’s Medical Pioneers in the Gannochy Trust Lecture Theatre, next door to the museum displays. 

The Tayside Medical History Museum has one of the finest collections in Scotland and the new displays tell the history of Dundee’s hospitals and Medical School as well as looking at pioneering research and the development of surgery and other forms of medical treatment. 

Admission is free and refreshments will be served. To help gauge numbers, we would be grateful if you could book for the event via Eventbrite here.

To find the museum, go in the main hospital entrance and turn left just before the reception desk in the main concourse.   Head along the corridor until you reach the blue promenade area for the Medical School.   Turn right before the seating area and you’ll find the displays there.
