Upcoming events

The Weight of History


6 August 2016 14:00 - 15:00


Bethlem Museum of the Mind
Bethlem Royal Hospital
Monks Orchard Road
Kent BR3 3BX

Drawing on the museum’s rich collection of art and artefacts, this exhibition explores the hospital’s long history and considers the tensions inherent in balancing Bethlem’s role as one of the UK’s most venerable institutions with its primary function: to provide state of the art mental healthcare.

Join our guest curator, Kendra Bean of University College London, for a tour of our new exhibition.
