History of Medicine

The Museum of  Medicine and Health is part of The University of Manchester. It contains over 8000 objects and is one of the most extensive collections of medical artefacts in England.

Discover more with this digital learning resource for Key Stage 4, as well as anyone curious about Manchester’s healthcare past.

Look at the object and read the descriptions.

Use the questions and activity suggestions to help spark discussion and debate around the three themes:

  • Understanding the Body

  • Surgery

  • Medicine in Conflict

The History of Medicine Museum would love to hear your feedback and if you like you can take part in a quick questionnaire.
