The Museum, based at the University’s Riverside Campus on Castle Drive, contains a permanent collection of curiosities from the world of medicine, nursing, midwifery and social work. In addition, the First World War: Returning Home exhibition is commemorating the 100-year anniversary of the conflict and provides an insight into what a soldier invalided back from the Front would have found on his return to Cheshire. Using local examples wherever possible, the exhibition covers aspects such as medical advances, the psychological effects of war, volunteering and volunteer nurses, a doctor’s country practice, home life, food and recipes, rural life and social welfare. 

 

Visitors with an interest in health and social care or local history are always welcome to visit the Museum and find out more from the Museum volunteers, many of whom have a healthcare background. Full details and updates are available on the website at: www.chester.ac.uk/health/historical-society. Group bookings for six or more people can be made at other times by prior arrangement by contacting: Roger Whiteley, r.whiteley@chester.ac.uk, 01244 511619. Please note that there is no car parking and visitors should use city centre car parks or public transport. Please go to the main reception at the University of Chester’s Riverside Campus opposite the River Dee.
