The joy of this tiny museum lies partly in its location, in the basement of an old London townhouse that is now home to the Association of Anaesthetists. I visited with my 15 year old son who was studying anaesthetics for history. I rang before visiting and was encouraged to visit any time the next day but was warned no-one would be available to show us round. We arrived and rang the bell and were welcomed in to the hallway. We signed in and were told if we had any questions we could leave them after our visit and someone would be in touch. We were taken downstairs to the tiny, two roomed museum packed with exhibits relating to the history of anaesthetics. Left to our own devices we watched an introductory video and wandered round. There are drawers full of a variety of artefacts to mull over and everything is carefully labelled. This is a very professionally organised little museum that has great charm. We combined this with a visit to the Old Operating Theatre and a very nice day out it was too!
