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 at Combe Park, and at The Pulteney Practice on Great Pulteney Street. 

We currently are not able to welcome visitors to a permanent exhibition gallery, but will be focusing instead on events and activities hosted via our website and through our partners. 

In the meantime, we hope you enjoy brief encounters with Bath’s medical history and our collections on display around the city.
