Cabinet of Curiosity - an update

Further to my recent update about “Cabinet of Curiosity” - an exhibition of highlights from the Tayside Medical History Museum's collections – here’s a further update from the Curator of Museum Services at the University of Dundee :

"Our new exhibition in the Lamb Gallery, “Cabinet of Curiosity, provides a rare chance to see some of the fascinating instruments, equipment and curiosities from the Tayside Medical History Museum on display outwith Ninewells Hospital. From gruesome surgical tools to early plant medicines and from Victorian x-rays to 1960s nurses, the exhibition reveals the story of Dundee’s ground-breaking role in medical history.

On Thursday 3rd April at 1pm there will be an informal guided tour of the exhibition by retired GP and Tayside Medical History Museum volunteer Dr Jim McKellican - all are welcome and there is no need to book."
