Museums & GalleriesThe Old Operating Theatre Museum

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.
