Hunterian Museum

With some of us never having visited the Hunterian Museum, we realised that we were morbidly curious. An eclectic mix of organs and skeletons from different species all museologically arranged to encourage discovery. It was difficult to gauge our own thoughts and opinions; having the opportunity to see internal components whilst thinking about the morality of objectifying the dead (similar to the experience had by students on the anatomy course).

It was intriguing how this microscope was used in the 1840’s as a scientific instrument, however now we are using it with more of an artistic purpose. Displaying the microscopic to Scouts, rather than keeping it within the confines of the science industry.
