The Anatomical Museum

Doorway 3, Medical School, Teviot Place, EH8 9AG

The collection of the Anatomical Museum consists of approximately 12,000 objects, which illustrate the story of 300 years of teaching Anatomy at the University of Edinburgh.

About one third of the museum’s collection is related to pathology, anatomy and comparative anatomy (zoology). This includes anatomical models, skeletal remains, dried preparations and specimens preserved in spirit.

The rest of the collection includes phrenological, pharmacological and forensic material as well as anatomical illustrations and other artworks.

The Anatomical Museum is NOT open to for in-person visits during Doors Open Days this year, but please enjoy a short virtual visit below:
