At our Museum Lates you can explore our fascinating collections, visit our exhibition and hear from our curatorial team.
Due to the tube strike this event has been rescheduled to Thursday 10 March.
As part of our new COVID-19 measures we are currently offering two time slots for attending the Museum Late. It’s important that you arrive during your time slot.
Join a curator introduction
Enjoy a free curator introduction to temporary exhibition RCP Unseen: the history of medicine like you’ve never seen before. Introductions are available at 6pm and 7pm on the exhibition gallery.
In RCP Unseen we display some of our riches for the very first time. Delve into our collections to discover never-seen-before curiosities, and explore previously hidden stories from the history of medicine and beyond...
