The shop at the Museum is small but full of interesting items. In Denise Barrett's review of the Museum for 'Health Matters' the museum shop was complimented as being "like a mini V&A shop". We try to make health and medicine the theme of the Shop but also have items of more general interest. We have a very good supply of books on the history of medicine and on herbal medicine. We have lots of idiosyncratic science toys and games including biros mascarading as syringes. We have tee-shirts, guide books, information sheets and books on local history.
