Behind The Scenes of The Science Museum's Medical History Collection

Rare and unseen items from the Science Museum's object store, from the Gaurdian.co.uk slideshow. Copy reads: "Many objects in the Wellcome Trust collection, held by the Science Museum, will be on view for the first time in the museum's new multimedia resource "Brought to Life: Exploring the History of Medicine."

Click here to see full slide-show and find out more about the images. For more on "Brought to Life: Exploring the History of Medicine," see these recent posts: 1, 2, 3. To visit the "Brought to Life" web exhibition, click here. For more visual exploration of the back room of the Wellcome Trust, see the Brothers Quay's "Phantom Museum."

Thanks to Lisa O'Sullivan, Senior Curator of Medicine at the Science Museum, for the tip! And congratulations on the fantastic website.
