Surgical instruments from the 1930s to the 1960s

At Walsall Museum

Now until Fri 6 Jul 2012 2012

**archived event**

If you’re squeamish look away now, the current display of historic surgical instruments at Walsall Museum is not for the faint hearted! The display in our Sister Dora Discovery Box contains many of the instruments the well-equipped hospital surgeon needs to carry out a range of operations – from a special saw for cutting through bone in amputations to pairs of retractors for holding opening a wound during an operation. The instruments all date from the 1930s to the 1960s and are on loan to the Museum from Mr and Mrs Neil Portman of West Bromwich.
The display can be seen in The Changing Face of Walsall gallery on the first floor of the Central Library and Museum building.  For further information please contact Walsall Museum on 01922 653116 or email
