Celebrating 132 years of service at Harrow Cottage Hospital, this exhibition will share the fascinating history of a lost hospital in Harrow. Funded by the Royal Society's Places of science scheme, this will be a rare chance to view original archives, photographs and objects relating to Harrow Hospital. The exhibition will shine a light on nursing, medicine and patient care within the context of the beginnings of a national health service.
A digital showcase complements the exhibition at the museum and can be viewed on the museum's website.

About Places of science
Through the Places of science grant scheme this year, 36 small museums across the United Kingdom have received up to £3,500 to run projects that tell stories of science to their local community.
From family days at the museum, through community-led creation and curation, to workshops for schools and documentary film-making, each project offers an exciting way for people to engage with science in the local area and beyond.
