Our galleries, shop and café will be OPEN this August Bank Holiday Monday! 😍  💯  But our library will be CLOSED over the holiday weekend 😥  (open again on Tuesday!)

 

Medicine Now Gallery

One of three engaging public exhibition gallery spaces open to the general public, 'Medicine Now' also lends itself to private and completely unique evening reception events where curious minds are fed with fascinating objects at every turn. ' Medicine Now' takes an intriguing look at modern scientific issues around the world, as seen through the eyes of artists, scientists and patients, and provides a thought-provoking backdrop and talking point for the most lively of networking sessions. Among other exhibits in ' Medicine Now' , you can see a 4ft jelly baby, a printout of the entire human genome sequence and a gastrointestinal camera the size of a baked bean.
