Wellcome Museum of Anatomy and Pathology
A study and teaching resource for qualified practitioners and students on recognised courses, in medicine, nursing and allied health subjects, and related scientific/technical subjects.
The Wellcome Museum contains modern anatomical and pathological teaching collections, consisting of preserved wet and dry bone and tissue. The collections include more than 800 prosections demonstrating human anatomy and over 2000 specimens illustrating all the important branches of surgical pathology. These are displayed according to the regions of the body.
Due to the modern date of the specimens the Wellcome Museum is regulated by the Human Tissue Authority and is required to comply with the Human Tissue Act (2004). The Wellcome Museum is therefore not open to the public and is only open to qualified practitioners and students on recognised courses, in medicine, nursing and allied health subjects, and related scientific/technical subjects.
Some quotes from our visitors:
