Medicine: The Wellcome Galleries at the Science Museum London
The Science Museum has just opened Medicine: The Wellcome Galleries, the world’s largest display dedicated to the history of medicine. Spanning centuries and continents, more than 3,000 astonishing objects are on display, revealing how ideas about health have changed throughout history. The galleries are free to visit and form an unparalled resource for secondary students, with links to Science, History, Psychology, PSHE and Religious Studies. They are also relevant for KS2 children.
To support school trips and enable teachers and pupils to make the most of the galleries (regardless of whether or not you are able to visit), there’s a range of free learning resources. These include gallery trails, a gallery guide, and an online 3D objects resource enabling students to experience the medicine collection from the classroom. Accessible on any computer or mobile device, the 3D models allow students to explore objects from every angle, with information and discussion questions to get conversations started.
