The Association of Anaesthetists

The Anaesthesia Heritage Centre at the Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland (AAGBI) is unique medical science museum devoted to the history of anaesthesia and pain relief. The current exhibition ‘Brave Faces’ shows how the innovations of Ivan Magill and Stanley Rowbotham revolutionised facial surgery.

The Heritage Centre was founded from a donation by A Charles King but has since embraced numerous contributions. The collection encompasses the entire history of anaesthesia, from Morton's demonstration of ether inhalation in 1846 to modern anaesthetic machines and appliances still in use today. An archive and library provide excellent facilities for research into the history of anaesthesia.
