Art and creativity inspired by Anatomy and Science
The Hunterian Museum is housed in the Royal College of Surgeons, London. It displays approximately 3,500 fascinating anatomical and pathological specimens from the collection of the surgeon and anatomist of John Hunter (1728-1793) including the skeleton of Charles Byrne, the “Irish Giant’, and around 2,500 specimens aquired after 1799. It is open to the public free of charge and holds regular events and talks.
If the little people in your life haven’t yet discovered anatomy, why not take them to meet eccentric surgeon ‘Jones the Bones’ on 2nd June. Jones the Bones will be able to answer all your questions about the human body, from what happens when you swallow your food, to why we fart. He’ll also supply you with a healthy dose of horrible facts to impress your friends.
