Directions to Adler Museum of Medicine

This unusual museum gives curious visitors a taste of all the grim and gruesome medical tools and methods used throughout the ages. The quirky exhibits take you through scenes in a traditional African herb shop all the way through to a 20th century doctor's surgery and even an operating theatre. See the often terrifying ways doctors in the past have tried to alleviate illness with 19th century amputation equipment and coffin sized iron lung machines. See the amusing ear trumpets and other novel ways medical science has tried to improve our lives. Place yourself nervously in an antique dentist's chair and glance upon what would have been used to pry out that pesky tooth, then thank goodness for modern medical advances. More than 40,000 objects over a diverse selection of displays demonstrate the continuing development medical science is making, and the impact this has on our lives.

With huge collections of reference books, documents, pictures and videos, the Adler Museum is a valuable research tool for training medical students and experts. This is a perfect place to visit for anyone fascinated by a field of science that is constantly progressing and makes a huge difference to the quality of lives the world over.

The museum is open weekdays 9am - 4pm and on Saturday by request.
