Currently closed for a Heritage Lottery Funded Redevelopment Project. Reopening September 2015.
Surgeons' Hall Museum is home to one of the largest and most historic collections of surgical pathology in the World. Originally developed as a teaching museum for students of medicine, its fascinating collections, including bone and tissue specimens, artefacts and works of art, have also been open to the public since 1832, making it Scotland’s oldest museum.
At the end of 2013, Surgeons' Hall Museum secured a grant of £2.7million from the Heritage Lottery Fund to assist with the redevelopment of the Museum. As such the Museum is now closed for redevelopment and will reopen in September 2015.
