Surreal Art In The Macabre Barts Pathology Museum, London

Category : Events, Exhibitions

The impressive permanent co has been largely closed to the public since the 1970s but it’s filled with fascinating and macabre specimens such as a conjoined twin skeleton and the rotting hand of a leper.

The collection usually only opens to the public alongside special events and seminars; but for the next two weeks, it’s open to the public, giving you the opportunity to see such treasures as a collapsed windpipe simply labelled ‘strangulation’, with the rest of the story left to visitors’ imagination.

Until 27 of August 2013
