A real eye opener to find out how tough it was for our great grand parents.

We take modern medicine for granted. Come here and realise how medicine has developed over a relatively short time.

I went to Leeds from Cheshire to visit this museum and it wasn't a wasted journey! It was a bit gory in parts but really interesting. It was was really good value at £7 per adult ticket and that then acts as a free pass for a year; this is great considering we spent hours in there and didn't get to see the whole museum as it reached closing time! The staff are friendly and the coffee shop is lovely too with lots of furnishings from an old apothecary. Worth a visit!
