The Old Operating Theatre Museum

Address: St. Thomas's St 9a, SE1 9RY London, United Kingdom


The Old Operating Theatre Museum and Herb Garret is one London museum offering a fascinating insight into the medical profession of the past. Hidden in the roof of St Thomas’ Church near London Bridge Underground and rail services, this 300-year old herb garret houses Britain's only surviving operating theatre, complete with wooden operating table and observation stands, from which spectators witnessed surgery performed before anesthesia or antiseptics.
