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

Thank you for your comprehensive review! As you mention, we're not strictly for children, but we do have a lively events programme which includes many free events during the year (summer and school half-term weeks, specifically), which are aimed at families with children, and if...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

Small (free) well displayed museum with medical artefacts many with a local connection. Visit the local woodland and have a cup of tea in the cafe. Parking is difficult on the hospital site.More

Thanks for your review of our museum. We're sorry that you found it difficult to park. We try to advertise widely that our own car park (behind the Charles Hastings Education Centre) is actually free for our lovely visitors, so I'm sorry if this wasn't...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

Combined with a trip to The Infirmary this is a superb gem. So interesting and informative. It was really quiet when we went which gave us time to really study and read everything on offer. Don't miss this small wonder.More

Thank you for your review, and I'm glad you found some quiet to enjoy the displays. We often have school groups in for their History of Medicine workshops, so we can guarantee you quiet isn't one of the words we would use to describe those...More
