The museum houses the many thousands of items – including official records, books, objects and ephemera – collected since the foundation of the Royal Veterinary College in 1791. Entry to the museum is by appointment only but the college’s website gives access to a database featuring virtual themed tours of the collections, such as the Anaesthesia Tour and the Farriers and Veterinarians tour, featuring information about instruments for surgery, recipe books for remedies and prepared medicines for the treatment of illness and disease.
