Museums at Night 2012: Lancing the Surgeons

Hunterian Museum
The Royal College of Surgeons of England, 35-43 Lincoln’s Inn Fields, London
Friday 18 May, 6-9pm

If you’ve not been to the Hunterian museum before (or just haven’t been in a while), this is a chance to see the spookiest setting around in an even spookier light at the Hunterian Museum Lates tomorrow night.

To celebrate Museums at Night we throw open the doors of our archives and mark the 150th anniversary of a man who fought the College of Surgeons every step of the way! Talks, activities and archival displays will look at the life of Thomas Wakley, surgeon, Lancet founder and editor and medical crusader. You can also discover some of the stranger things that the College has acquired, try your hand at surgical ‘top trumps’ and take the opportunity to research a surgical ancestor. See full info here.
