UCL Culture Museums and Collections have been acquired over a long period of time and catalogue entries include examples of outdated, offensive and inaccurate language. We are actively working to address this and welcome suggestions for improvements or changes.

UCL Culture Museums and Collections contain human remains at UCL Pathology Museum the Grant Museum of Zoology and the Petrie Museum of Egyptian and Sudanese Archaeology. UCL Pathology Museum includes specimens with changes caused by disease, some of which were collected to teach medical students. Please be aware that these specimens can make a strong impression. A statement about UCL Culture’s approach to care and curation of human remains can be found on our website.
