The London Museums of Health and Medicine is hosting a free drop-in museum object handling session featuring items from a range of London's medical museums.

Expert staff from ten of the collections that go to make up the LMoHM group will be together in one room to interpret the objects for you and a wide range of health topics will be covered. Participating museums include (in alphabetical order) Barts Pathology Museum, Bethlem Museum of the Mind, British Red Cross Museum, College of Optometrists (British Optical Association Museum), Old Operating Theatre, Royal College of Physicians, Royal College of Surgeons, Science Museum, St. Bartholomew's Hospital Museum and the Wellcome Library. Visitors to 'Hands On' can expect to see and touch, amongst other things, model body parts and bodily prosthetics, surgical instruments, and diagnostic equipment. Try on some old spectacles or acquire some surgical skills by turning your hand (or arm) to our interactive suturing activity.
