Description
Images for St Barts Pathology Museum for public displays and press releases. The Pathology Museum is part of St Barts Teaching Hospital in St Pauls, London. ___________________________________________________ The Skull belongs to John Bellingham (1769 – 1812). On the afternoon of 11 May, 1812, John Bellingham, a bankrupt and embittered businessman, walked into the lobby of the Palace of Westminster. He waited a while and, upon seeing prime minister Spencer Perceval, approached him, took out a duelling pistol and shot him through the heart. As shocked onlookers rushed towards him, Perceval uttered the words: "I am murdered. I am murdered." He then collapsed and died - the only UK prime minister to be assassinated. ___________________________________________________ The Barts museum tells the story of the hospital and its work in caring for the sick and injured. The museum collections include historic surgical instruments, sculptures, medieval archives, and works of art, including paintings by William Hogarth. The museum is located under the North wing archway and is open from Tuesday to Friday from 10am to 4pm. Admission is free but donations are welcome.

    Barts Pathology Museum is part of ‘Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry’ and not to be confused with the St Bartholomew’s Hospital Museum (which is open to the public). The Pathology Museum is undergoing a period of renovation and all 5000 anatomical specimens are being conserved. As a result, the museum is only open during special evening events or taxidermy courses which are listed on the temporary site www.potts-pots.blogspot.com along with conservation information.
