NHS workers to gain half price admission to latest exhibition Doctors, Dissection and Resurrection Men
From Monday 5 November doctors, nurses and NHS workers looking to find out more about the murky world of anatomy in the 19th century will be able to visit the Museum of London’s latest major exhibition for half the price.
Doctors, Dissection and Resurrection Men reveals the extraordinary and unexpected discoveries of a 2006 archaeological dig at the Royal London Hospital carried out by Museum of London Archaeology. Since opening on 19 October 2012 it has already received rave reviews from the media.
Sharon Ament, Director of the Museum of London, said:
“The Museum of London tells the story of the world’s greatest city and its people, revealing what historical events mean for present day London. Doctors, Dissection and Resurrection Men explores the story of human dissection and the shadowy trade between the surgeons and the resurrection men who supplied them with fresh corpses. The legacy of this time is to be found in every anatomical reference book, surgical training course and every hospital today. The story is told through fascinating displays mixing never-seen-before human remains with exquisite illustrations, objects and multimedia interpretation. It gives me great pleasure that the Museum of London is able to reward the hard work of NHS employees through discounted entry to an exhibition that anybody with an interest in the human body is bound to enjoy.”
NHS workers are encouraged to look out for news on Twitter with the tag #NHSMondays.
