More visitor info

After recently completing our exciting four-million-pound redevelopment, we can’t wait to invite visitors to explore our imaginative and exciting galleries. Follow the story of medicine, wander through the grimy streets of Victorian Leeds, watch gruesome operations taking place in our 19th-century operating theatre, visit a seventies-style sexual health clinic, chart how well the world responds to crisis, and discover the medical innovations that changed the world.

Through play, creativity, talks, experiences, social events and formal education, we’re both a place to pay fitting tribute to our health heroes and inspire the next generation of big thinkers.

The museum is poised to reopen in 2021 as soon as COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted.
