Faculty of Health and Social Care Riverside Museum
University of Chester Riverside Museum

The FHSC Historical Society has gathered a selection of curiosities from the world of medicine, nursing, midwifery and social work for display in the Riverside Museum at the University of Chester.


The Museum is open on the first Wednesday in the month between 1pm and 4pm and for groups of six or more by arrangement only. Visit www.chester.ac.uk/hsc/historical-society for full details of opening times and associated talks.


The everyday and unusual objects from these fields of study and practice forms a permanent collection based at the Riverside Campus in Chester city centre and this is now complemented by a new exhibition: The First World War: Returning Home. Visitors with an interest in health and social care or local history are always welcome to come along and find out more from the volunteers, many of whom have a healthcare background.
