Thackray Museum of Medicine

Venue Description

Immerse yourself in our imaginative and exciting galleries, from the history of healthcare to the advances that have shaped the way we look after ourselves, and each other. Wander through the grimy streets of Victorian Leeds, watch gruesome operations taking place in our 19th-century operating theatre, visit a seventies-style sexual health clinic, chart how well the world responds to crisis, and discover the medical innovations that changed the world. Through play, creativity, talks, experiences, social events and formal education, we’re both a place to pay fitting tribute to our health heroes and inspire the next generation of big thinkers.


We want everyone to enjoy the museum. It is fully wheelchair and buggy accessible, entry is free for essential companions, we have a Changing Places toilet and we welcome registered support and assistance dogs. You can find more accessibility information by visiting our guide hosted on Visit Britain’s website.
