The museum is temporarily closed in order to reduce the exposure of the Pulteney Practice and their patients to COVID-19.

We will reopen to public visits once the threat to public health has passed. In the meantime, we are asking all our staff and volunteers to follow the UK Government’s Public Health advice and to work from home as much as possible.

We are a true museum without walls. You can see many objects from our collections on display in various other museums and art galleries around the city of Bath, as well as at the RNHRD & Brownsword Therapies Centre. If you would like a more unique and personal experience of Bath Medical Museum, then why not visit us at our home in Great Pulteney Street where you can see themed displays dedicated to medical history.

With some of our most unique and prized objects from our collections on permanent display, as well as regularly changing exhibitions, our Great Pulteney Street exhibits are not to be missed.
