The Old Operating Theatre visit

The Old Operating Theatre Museum and Herb Garren is one of the oldest surviving operating suites (dating from 1822) and a museum of surgical history. The museum consists of the operating suite that was used in the days before anesthetics and antiseptic surgery and the herb garret to store and cure herbs used in healing.
