The London museums of health and medicine site, created by the London Museums of Health and Medicine Group, provides information on over twenty health and medical museums in London. The type of information available for each museum listed includes: a brief description of individual collections, opening hours, addresses, location details, email addresses, and a link to the museum's website (if available). An interactive map of London displays the exact location of each institution. Additionally, the site offers a news section and maintains a news archive. The list of museums includes amongst others: the Chelsea Physic Garden; Freud Museum; Florence Nightingale Museum; Old Operating Theatre; Veterinary Museum; Worshipful Society of Apothecaries; and the Wellcome Trust.
This is the website for the Oxford University Museum of Natural History. Located in an iconic, Grade 1 listed neo-gothic building, the museum is a working resource for the University’s teaching and research. The Museum’s collections are divided into four areas: entomology; geology; mineralogy and petrology; and zoology. The Museum also accommodates a number of research libraries and an environmental archaeology unit. As well as its obvious interest to those studying the natural sciences, the Museum’s collections have wider cultural and historical interest, and include: rare specimens such as the most complete remaining single Dodo in existence (immortalised in Lewis Carroll’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’); much of Charles Darwin’s Crustacea collection from The Beagle; the collections of (or related to) pioneering scientists such as Thomas Bell, William Burchell, Robert Plot, Edward Lhwyd, William Buckland and Lawrence Wager. The website includes learning materials based on the museums collections, as well as access to the museum’s online collection database. The Museum receives funding from the AHRC.
