New Temporary Exhibition Announced

19 March 2019
Surgeons' Hall Museums are delighted to announce their new temporary exhibition 'A Design For Life'.

The anatomy of other animals has long fascinated scientists. From ancient times, anatomists have dissected animals to explore the structure and function of the body.

During the 18th and 19th centuries, comparative anatomy was seen as a central part of medical education and training. 'A Design For Life' explores the history of this fascinating subject and how integral it was to the beginnings of Surgeons' Hall Museums.

The exhibition will replace 'Field Notes: Reflections of Camp Life at the Scottish Women's Hospitals' which will close at 5pm on Sunday the 31st of March.

'A Design for Life' will open on Saturday the 6th of April 2019 and will close at the end of March 2020. Entry to the exhibition is included in Museum admission.
