MuseumSights and activitiesBath Medical Museum

The Bath Medical Museum is a small museum with exhibits about the history of medicine with an emphasis on Bath’s development as a leading centre of medicine.

The museum was founded in 2012 when the Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases opened a small museum inside the former Royal Mineral Water Hospital to showcase its collection of medical artefacts. The museum moved into its current premises on Great Pulteney Street in late 2019 after the former hospital was sold to a Singapore-based hotel group to be converted into an upscale hotel.
