A year after its 1997 launch the Thackray Medical Museum won the prestigious Museum of the Year accolade. Located in a Grade II listed former Leeds Union Workhouse dating back to the 19th century, during the First World War the heritage building was a medical care haven for the armed forces. Currently undergoing a £4 million makeover, the museum will reopen in the summer, after structural renovations, redevelopment of all the galleries and a major rebrand are completed. Visitors will be able to step back in time and learn about disease-ridden Victorian streets, then travel right through history and medical advancements to the present day, as well as discovering what the future holds for medicine and health care. thackraymedicalmuseum.co.uk
