Museum of the College of Surgeons

Museum of the College of Surgeons .—This building, on the south side of Lincoln's Inn Fields, can be visited by strangers only through the introduction of members of the College.  The Government, about seventy years ago, bought John Hunter's Anatomical Museum, and presented it to the College.  The contents of the museum are illustrative of the structure and functions of the human body, both in the healthy and the diseased state; they have been classified and arranged with great skill by Professor Owen.
