The Hunterian Museum at the Royal College of Surgeons of England has at its heart the anatomy and pathology collections of the eighteenth century surgeon and anatomist John Hunter. The building has been closed since 2017 to undergo a major redevelopment. The Hunterian Museum will reopen to the public, free of charge, in March 2023.
