The Old Operating Theatre Museum is Europe’s oldest operating theatre from 1822, where surgery without anaesthesia took place in front of audiences.
Housed in the attic of the early eighteenth-century church of the old St Thomas’ Hospital, this atmospheric museum offers a unique insight into the history of medicine and surgery.
Check for events and talks, including film nights and surgical demonstrations.
