A dental surgery from the 1930s, an iron lung and a collection of glass eyes were just some of the fascinating artefacts Upper V historians saw at a visit to the Royal Berkshire Hospital Medical Museum. The pupils were given a tour of the museum by experts in the medical profession, giving them further insight to enhance their Medicine Through Time topic.
The Museum is open to the public on the third Sunday of every month. You can find out more on their website: http://www.royalberkshire.nhs.uk/get-involved/medical-museum.htm
Here’s what the pupils had to say:
"The tour guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic."
"Seeing the rare sample of the early penicillin was a once in a lifetime experience."
"I found the surgical brace fascinating."
"It was fun and historical."
