Barts Pathology Museum houses over 5,000 medical specimens on display over 3 mezzanine levels of the Grade II listed Victorian museum. Originally collected as a teaching aid for medical students, the anatomy and pathology ‘pots’ share space with other specimens and related objects, including the skull of John Bellingham, who murdered the Prime Minister Spencer Perceval. The Pathology Museum is separate to the hospital’s own museum, which is open to the public, and tells the story of the hospital’s 900-year history, and although located within St Bartholomew’s Hospital, it is managed by Queen Mary University of London.

Conservation and cataloguing of the specimens is ongoing, and although the museum is not open to the public on a regular basis, it frequently hosts events including seminars, taxidermy classes, and even a pop-up cake shop!
