Everyone has an interest in health, and visits to London's museums of health and medicine will reveal the fascinating range and diversity of the subject.

From rare plants, heart surgery, illuminated manuscripts, and helicopter emergency services, to pharmacies, false teeth and Freud, the exhibits in these museums help to place the history and development of medicine and health care in its widest context. Along the way, they provide some remarkable insights into an age-long campaign against illness, disease and injury.

Whatever your age or interest, London's museums of health and medicine are well worth visiting.

The Museum of Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Trust is devoted to the history of the hospital and personalities connected with the hospital since its inception in 1852.
