The Museum of Drugs is home to a vast collection of historic antiques including artefacts and ephemera. On this site we showcase a revolving selection of items from our collection, providing unique insights into the history of substance use and its societal context.
We love to collaborate and therefore, if you have physical spaces such as a gallery or function room and would like to partner with us on an exhibition, it would be great to hear from you. Click here
