This is an exciting development on Euston Rd, or should've been. But I think UNISON's attempt to frame this woman's esteemed career and life within the perspective of today's trade unionist's and Labour Party is utilitarian. There isn't a huge amount to see although the...More

I found this place when walking from Euston to the British Library - it's about mid way between the two. I'd never heard of Elizabeth Garrett Anderson but have talked about her since my visit. She was a very admirable and innovative woman, the first...More

I saw the sign and was so pleased I went in. It is extremely well done with interactive displays. A must for anyone interested in social history. Fabulous find which should be known about! I was the only one there as well.

I was surprised that we had this small museum to ourselves, and even more surprised to be one of the first reviewers. Just a few yards from Euston Station, the location isn't obvious, you have to be brave and go into the Unison building and...More

Now a trade union building, the site was the home of a famous women's hospital - there was outcry when there were plans to knock it down. EG Anderson worked all her life for women and especially for the training of female doctors. The exhibits...More
