The Old Operating Museum – London Bridge – Open Daily
Now back to a slightly more traditional history experience, if you call an operating-theatre-hidden-in-the-attic-of-an-18th-century-church ‘traditional’. Offering a unique insight into the history of medicine and surgery it is the oldest surviving (no pun intended) surgical theatre in Europe! Plus, every Saturday at 2pm you can observe from the same position as medical students of old, as you’re taken through a mock demonstration of surgery before anaesthetics. They even run family-friendly workshops during the holidays and GCSE exam prep sessions for older kids.
Under 18s £3.50, Adults £6.50, Family (2 adults + 2 children) £15 – additional children + £1 each
