Bethlem Royal Hospital Museum of the Mind, London

Explore the Bethlem Royal Hospital Museum of the Mind on your university or college trip to London.

Bethlem Museum was formally opened by artist Grayson Perry in March 2015.

The museum cares for an internationally renowned collection of archives, art and historic objects, which together offer an unparalleled resource to support the history of mental healthcare and treatment.

Self-guided visits include a short introductory talk and a visit to the museum, including sections on labelling and diagnosis, freedom and constraint, temperament, treatments and recovery. 

Teachers are also welcome to organise an advance visit and develop their own tailored activities.
