The Work of Medical Museums


PhD Research Project, The Work of Medical Museums

Have you visited the Anaesthesia Heritage Centre or engaged with them online? We want to hear about your experience!

This study aims to better understand audience engagement in medical museums. What draws visitors to these kinds of museums? How do visitors engage with the objects and narratives presented here? How can medical museums contribute to wellbeing?

Please fill out this online survey to share your thoughts. Please note there is an information sheet and consent form ahead of the survey itself.

This study is being conducted by a UCL PhD student in Heritage Studies in partnership with the Anaesthesia Heritage Centre. If you have been a museum volunteer and want to talk about that experience, please email [email protected]. For more information, visit the project website at
