The Hidden City

Barts Pathology Museum

The Pathology Museum is a Medical Humanities hub and a dedicated study/teaching facility within the School of Medicine and Dentistry at Queen Mary University of London.

It is open to the public by invitation to special events and attracts a highly appreciative audience; many of which attend on a frequent basis. It is situated in an original Victorian Building within the grounds of St Bartholomew’s Hospital NHS Trust. It houses several thousand pathological specimens across three floors reflecting over 200 years of ever-changing hospital medicine and disease.

A small team including Curator Dr. Robin Poston, Public Engagement Officer Carla Valentine, Osteologist Alexandra Poulter (left), Manager Steve Moore (centre) and conservation expert Martyn Cooke (right) work in the museum looking after the many specimens and promoting it within both the academic community and the wider public.
