Happy new year from the staff at LHSA!
This first blog of 2014 is a little reminder of a couple of great exhibitions that you can see this January, both of which include some gems from the LHSA collection…
‘200 years, 200 objects’ is on display at the Talbot Rice Gallery until 15 February. Please see the Talbot Rice site for opening times, admission is free. Don’t miss your chance to see lots of great LHSA items that help illustrate the Royal Edinburgh Hospital’s rich history. We’re also planning some talks and tours to accompany the exhibition over the next few weeks, so watch this space!
‘Collect.ed’, a fabulous arrangement of material from across Edinburgh University’s collections, is on display until 1 March. Again, admission is free. Medicine bottles and a nurse’s chatelaine from our collection sit side-by-side with shells found by Darwin and fossilised raindrops, to name but a few of the wonders in Edinburgh University’s Main Library Exhibition Gallery. For information about opening times please click here, and for the exhibition blog for more insights, please click here.
We’ll be back next week, and for the rest of the year, to tell you more about LHSA’s collections, what we’re doing and how you can get involved!
