Anaesthesia Heritage Centre

The Anaesthesia Museum is part of the Anaesthesia Heritage Centre and it contains objects relating to the history of anaesthesia.

The earliest object in our collections is a resuscitation set of 1774. Our collections give an insight into the history of anaesthesia, resuscitation and pain relief. The museum has a permanent and a temporary display, as well as pull-out drawers and flipbooks containing biographies and details of large anaesthetic machines.
