East Grinstead Museum has a wonderful research room available for visitors and researchers alike. With books, magazines, and news paper cuttings about the local area you are able to read and research your area of interest.
As a result of our Rebuilding Bodies & Souls exhibition we have welcomed medical and history students recently as they work towards their dissertations.
Currently Alex (in the photo) is studying History of Medicine and researching the role of art in the history of the hospital, in particular the work of Mollie Lentaigne. Mollie made medical drawings in the operating theatre for Sir Archibald McIndoe while he worked on burns victims to document new and often ground breaking procedures. With an extensive range of books relating to the Guinea Pig Club and Sir Archibald McIndoe Alex is a regular visitor to the museum.
If you would like to research something in particular, please get in touch and one of our volunteers will be able to help guide you through the material.
