Heritage in Hospitals Research Project

How does museum object handling affect wellbeing and recovery?
Are patients in healthcare environments an appropriate audience for museums?
Can the impact of handling sessions on patient wellbeing be measured?

UCL Museums & Collections and University College London Hospitals have set out to answer these questions in the research project Heritage in Hospitals. Reading Museum is proud to be a project partner in this exciting research which for the first time will investigate the effect of handling museum objects on hospital patients’ wellbeing.
