Currently closed for a Heritage Lottery Funded Redevelopment Project. Reopening Summer 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 Summer 2015.
The Museum is currently running an Outreach Exhibition in partnership with the University of Edinburgh. The exhibition, "Words and Deeds: Women, Warfare and Caregiving" was hosted at Surgeons' Hall Museum in 2013 and can currently be seen at St. Giles Cathedral until the 8th of September.
