Event description
Join our Curator Louise Wilkie as she dives deeper into the history of anatomical models!

About this event

Join our Curator as she delves deeper into the history of anatomical models, some of which are on display in our temporary exhibition ‘A Model Education’, which will be available to view after the talk. We will encounter the materials and techniques that were used to create these realistic models. Explore the artist collaborations, and of course the artistic abilities of the anatomists themselves. Lastly, we explore the crucial question of ‘why’ these models were of such importance to a medical education and is this still the case today?

WARNING - This talk will include images of cadaveric material (in model form but very lifelike), including casts showing dissections of women in various stages of pregnancy.

The talk will last approximately 1 hour and then the museum will be open until 9pm for ticket holders only.

Eventbrite charge a booking fee (0.49p + 6.5% of the ticket value) for this event which is included in your ticket price but is non-refundable.

Organiser Surgeons' Hall Museums

Organiser of A Model Education

The award winning Museums are open to the public, 7 days a week, 10am to 5pm and are home to one of the largest and most historic pathology collections in the United Kingdom.

Surgeons’ Hall Museums reopened in 2015 after a major £4.4 million Heritage Lottery Funded redevelopment project. As one of the oldest Museums in Scotland, the collections grew from 1699 after 'natural and artificial curiosities' were publically sought,  with the Playfair Building opening in 1832 to house the Barclay and Bell collections. Whilst the Museums were initially established as a medical teaching resource, all are now welcome to visit.
