  • I went just to see Elephant Man and letter of Jack The Ripper (the Ripper), but in the end I found it very interesting, I could see all the old surgical instruments used many years ago.

  • Visited my granddaughter in the nicu. Wonderful staff and very supportive when my granddaughter was poorly
  • Very interesting if you want to learn about the History of the Royal London Hospital. Also has a replica of John metrics remains.
  • Lovely little museum. Very very clean and tidy. Also a very cheap little shop with postcards books dvds and more. Well worth a look. Small but size isn't everything
  • This is one of those gems that London has so many of but which few people get to see. It isn't a huge museum but what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in interest. You can trace the fascinating history of the hospital itself. But it also has exhibits on the so-called "Elephant Man" Joseph Merrick and a small display on the Jack the Ripper murders which took place in the locality. It can be a bit tricky to find as it is located in the back streets behind the hospital. But, once you have found it you'll be glad you did.
  • A small museum which holds the skeleton of Joseph merrick, better know as the elephant man
