Hi there, we are not at the University. We are in the Charles Hastings Education Centre at Worcestershire Royal Hospital. You probably visited The Infirmary. All best, Louise

Thank you for your review. The directions for entry are spot on. Thank you. I don't think ANY of us would have rather been born 100 years ago... :)

Some commentaries factually incorrect, otherwise interesting and informative. Aimed largely at school children although also useful for adults

Never Knew about this place until I visited the Charles Hasting Education Centre, free entry, small but well placed museum with decent history of medicine in different eras and good collection

Thanks so much for reviewing our lovely little museum, and for appreciating our collection. We wish we could put all of our lovely artefacts on display, but we'd need a museum ten times bigger! Please do come back and visit us again.

There is a little gem of a medical museum in Worcester that I discovered by chance some years ago – the George Marshall Medical Museum. Heard of it? Sadly, I’d guess probably not – and, believe me, you are missing out…! For me, this is...More

The George Marshall Medical Museum is only small, tucked away in a passageway in the Worcestershire Royal Hospital, which levies hefty charges for parking, even to see this fantastic museum, which is free to visit. As we had to pay a hefty fee to park,...More

An excellent collection of well curated artefacts, arranged to tell the history of modern medicine, with many local references to Worcester. It is informative, but one or two of the vitrines are quite graphic representations of early surgery which some might find disturbing. The museum...More

As an ex medic I enjoyed my visit it brought back memories of my younger working life. I would recommend this Museum which is at the back of Worcester Royal Hospital in the post grad centre and has free parking
