Visit the Royal College of Physicians Museum after hours with extended opening times on the first Thursday of the month throughout 2018

Located in the RCP's Grade I-listed 'modernist masterpiece', our museum collections have been gathered over 5 centuries since our foundation by Royal Charter of Henry VIII in 1518.

In celebration of our 500th birthday, the RCP Museum will be open late the first Thursday of every month during 2018. Take in our temporary exhibitions, explore our Anniversary heritage trail, and enjoy our Grade I listed building.
