Bone at Florence Nightingale Museum

An eclectic exhibition of around 60 objects exploring the rich history and substance of bone, across cultures, throughout time and between disciplines.

Visitors can explore objects including an X-ray of Sigmund Freud's head, a cat skeleton to ward off evil spirits, a skull shaped candle made for Marilyn Manson's wedding, a contemporary apothecary jar showing the effects of syphilis on bone, cutting edge medical bone imaging and Florence Nightingale's pet tortoise 'Jimmy'.

The exhibition reflects bone's intriguing and multi-faceted story in its objects as well as through live performances and demonstrations by biomedical researchers and clinicians, forensic archaeologists, bone carvers, dancers, historians, artists and other professional bone users.
