Housed in a grand building occupied by the Royal College of Surgeons, the Hunterian Museum displays the collection of pioneering surgeon John Hunter (1728-93). There are plenty of pickled creatures in jars here, alongside facinating deformed skeletons. More contemporary exhibits explore contemporary and future surgery – not for the squeamish!
