Even the squeamish won't balk at the exhibits in this museum devoted to presenting social and medical history in a kid-friendly way. Educational but entertaining interactive displays take you back to the slums of the 1840s, reveal the realities of surgery without anesthetics, and explore the experience of having a baby in Victorian times and today. The museum is popular with school groups on field trips. It's a mile east of the city center and accessible by Buses 16, 42,
49, and 50.
