Join Curator Erika Taylor on an entertaining small-group tour of Tweed Regional Museum’s newest exhibition, Cure All.
Cure All will simultaneously delight and horrify visitors but also inspire curiosity, intrigue, and a deep appreciation of modern health care. The exhibition explores stories of health and medicine in the Tweed through fascinating objects and photographs from the Museum.
The tour will include a fascinating deep-dive into the Museum’s health and medicine collection, both strange and wonderful. The tour is interactive, and full of surprises. Get up close and personal with the Museum’s leeches, be fascinated by killer pills, cure-oil concoctions, and illicit potions, and experience some electrifying quack medicine.
About Cure All
Showcasing over 200 objects from the Museum’s collection, the exhibition features intriguing, and sometimes disturbing, surgical equipment, vintage first aid kits, killer pills, cure-oil concoctions, and illicit potions.
Stories highlight local community spirit in fundraising for essential services such as ambulance and local hospitals and features a stunning collection of apothecary and medical items from local pharmacies. Learn about the health professionals that have cared for the Tweed throughout history, marvel at 1920’s dentistry equipment, and be mesmerised by live leeches on display.
