Never Knew about this place until I visited the Charles Hasting Education Centre, free entry, small but well placed museum with decent history of medicine in different eras and good collection

Thanks so much for reviewing our lovely little museum, and for appreciating our collection. We wish we could put all of our lovely artefacts on display, but we'd need a museum ten times bigger! Please do come back and visit us again.

The George Marshall Medical Museum is only small, tucked away in a passageway in the Worcestershire Royal Hospital, which levies hefty charges for parking, even to see this fantastic museum, which is free to visit. As we had to pay a hefty fee to park,...More

An excellent collection of well curated artefacts, arranged to tell the history of modern medicine, with many local references to Worcester. It is informative, but one or two of the vitrines are quite graphic representations of early surgery which some might find disturbing. The museum...More

Small (free) well displayed museum with medical artefacts many with a local connection. Visit the local woodland and have a cup of tea in the cafe. Parking is difficult on the hospital site.More

As an ex medic I enjoyed my visit it brought back memories of my younger working life. I would recommend this Museum which is at the back of Worcester Royal Hospital in the post grad centre and has free parking

Combined with a trip to The Infirmary this is a superb gem. So interesting and informative. It was really quiet when we went which gave us time to really study and read everything on offer. Don't miss this small wonder.More
