Do you know your anatomy? Is your hand steady and can you dress a wound?

Becoming a surgeon was a serious decision before anaesthesia and antiseptics. A steady hand was needed for an operation.

Come to the Old Operating Theatre to learn how to train and become a surgeon in the 19th century.

The event is free, but general Museum admission prices apply (adults, £6.50; concessions, £5; children £3.50; family, £14).

This is a family friendly event. No booking necessary.
