Museum Floor plan

The Museum contains over 3,000 specimens (or "pots"), which display diseased human tissue at the macroscopic level preserved in formalin. Specimens are arranged in one of two major groups - pathological processes such as congenital and vascular or by organ systems, such as renal and skin. Each specimen is numbered and accompanied by a clinical history (if known), a description of the evident abnormalities, and a histological description of changes (if relevant). That information, specific to each of 30 areas or "bays", is found in the catalogues located within each bay.
