Located in the RCP's Grade I-listed 'modernist masterpiece', our museum collections have been gathered over five centuries since our foundation by Royal Charter of Henry VIII in 1518. When visiting look out for our:

  • portraits and silver, which are displayed throughout the building
  • fascinating Symons collection of artefacts which would have been used by physicians and for self-care in the home
  • Prujean chest of 17th century surgical instruments
  • extraordinary set of 17th-century human remains - John Finch's anatomical tables which give a fascinating insight into dissection and discovery in anatomy
  • current exhibition RCP Unseen where we display some of our unseen riches for the very first time. Delve into our collections to discover never-seen-before curiosities, and explore previously hidden stories from the history of medicine and beyond...
