Victorian Medicine Event Day at Nuneaton Museum & Art Gallery

Published on Monday, 3rd February 2020

Join us on Saturday 8 February from 11am - 4pm to meet a person from history!

Introducing Professor Sephmus Ringwood, a travelling medicine man. Before the NHS, people had to pay for medical help which was very expensive. Travelling medical men were a cheap alternative selling cures at market.

Come along to find out all about Victorian medicine, handle objects and take part in a make ‘n’ take craft activity with our Access Assistants.

Councillor Ian Lloyd, Portfolio Holder for Art and Leisure said:

“The museum’s Event Days are always exciting, with lots to see and plenty of hands-on fun for all the family!”

The event is free and there is no need to book. All children should be accompanied by an adult.

Don’t forget there are also temporary exhibitions and permanent displays to enjoy for free around the building.

The museum is open 10.30-4.30pm on Saturdays.  Contact the Museum on 024 7637 6158 or Also see our website
