Medical Myths and Mysteries

Part of Summer Holiday Programme

Did you like seeing our virtual tour of our Medical Marvels exhibition?

Today, we are bringing back one of our favourite family shows, Medical Myths and Mysteries! We'll be going back in time to the Middle Ages and travelling all the way back to present day, taking a peek how terrible diseases were cured back then and how medicine has changed along the way.

Can you imagine how different the UK would be back in the Middle Ages? How different do you think medical technology was compared to the stuff you saw in our Medical Marvels exhibition?

Join us and find out the gruesome history of medicine, we'll learn a little bit about what Milk Leg is, how herd immunity works, and if there really is a benefit of sniffing up scabs?
