Welcome to Thackray Medical Museum. Through nine interactive galleries we will take you on a journey of discovery to explore the incredible world of medicine.

Take a walk down a recreated 1842 slum street and discover what life was like amongst the rats and bedbugs, enter the frightening world of surgery before anaesthetics, explore the tools of the Victorian surgeon, and find out how your body works and how to keep healthy in the LifeZone children's gallery.
