Housed in one of the most impressive Victorian buildings in Leeds, the Thackray Medical Museum is truly unique and is the only museum of its kind in the North of England. The Thackray Medical Museum in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England, is a museum of the history of medicine.

There are many ghost stories at this fantastic location which was a former workhouse and considering its terrifying history its not surprising that many of the resident spirits are still remaining
This location is HUGE with plenty of investigation areas

HISTORY
The building is a Grade II listed building formerly known as the Leeds Union Workhouse and was built in 1858 to accommodate 784 paupers. By the end of the 19th century, the buildings had become largely used for medical care of the poor, rather than workhouse and training. During the First World War it was called the East Leeds War Hospital, caring for armed services personnel.

By day Thackray Medical Museum is a reincarnation of life in Victorian Leeds where visitors walk through a reproduction of slum streets complete with authentic sights, sounds and smells and are invited to follow the lives, ailments and treatments of eight Victorian characters, making the choices that determine their survival amongst the rats, fleas and bedbugs. Pain, Pus and Blood describes surgery before anaesthesia, and how pain relief progressed and having a Baby focuses on developments in safety for childbirth.
