Thackray Museum of Medicine

Shipshape: Medicine at Sea
Sat, 23 March 2024 – Sun, 14 April 2024

All aboard! This Easter, H.M.S Thackray will set sail on a voyage into unchartered waters to explore medicine at sea through the ages.
From galleons and battleships to trawlers and cruise liners, which worrying ailments have made sailors, captains and pirates alike gruesomely groggy? And what could be prescribed to ensure you don’t fall victim too?

Across the holidays we’ll be testing the cut of your jib and tying you in knots with a treasure trove of activities across the museum, suitable for all ages and free with your museum ticket. Will it all be smooth sailing? Join our motley crew and find out.

Don’t forget that a ticket lasts a whole year so you can return every holiday!
