The wait is nearly over!
Our much-anticipated exhibition, 'Anatomy: A Matter of Death and Life' opens Saturday 2 July at the National Museum of Scotland.
Explore the history of anatomical study from artistic explorations by Leonardo da Vinci to the Burke and Hare murders.
The exhibition includes exquisite early examples of anatomical art, William Burke’s skeleton and handwritten confession, and from National Museums Scotland’s own collections a ‘mort' safe and the Arthur’s Seat Coffins.
