Exhibition talks

There will be specialist curator talks on the current exhibition 'Fortitude' at 6pm and 7pm.

In 2021 we began collecting the experiences of healthcare professionals working in the COVID-19 pandemic. With their permission, the RCP is privileged to share their experiences, in their own words.

Visitor comments:

‘Thought provoking. A real solid memory of difficult and emotionally draining time for medical staff and all NHS staff, patients and families.’

'Reflective, moved, thankful. Sad but also uplifted and in awe of the work and strength of healthcare workers. Powerful and amazing exhibition.'

Please be aware this exhibition contains images, descriptions and audio recordings relating to illness, death, grief and trauma.

Craft café

Inspired by the craft-making activities that provided solace for healthcare workers and many others during the pandemic we will be hosting a ‘Craft café’.

The Regent’s Perk café will also be open for refreshments.

Explore our collections

Take the opportunity to explore the rest of our museum after hours including:

  • fine art portraits and ceremonial silver
    the fascinating Symons collection of artefacts which would have been used by physicians and for self-care in the home
    the Prujean chest of 17th century surgical instruments
    an extraordinary set of rare 17th-century human remains
