Museum from home: travelling for health


Museums around the UK and across the world have been using the internet to share more stories from their collections than ever before during the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdowns. As part of this, the RCP Museum is sharing a short series of talks from members of staff, recording from their homes while we plan for the re-opening of the museum.

In this video, rare books and special collections librarian Katie Birkwood shares a Victorian guide to the best holiday destinations to visit for your health.

You can explore our collections and exhibitions from the comfort of your own home in a variety of ways. Our current exhibition is now online, we are running an exciting series of digital events throughout 2020, and you can explore our collections online via our museum and archive and library catalogues.
