Joshua McGovern, a Year 10 student from Twyford Church of England High School, London explains why the Hunterian Museum should be on your must-see list.

Take a look at his accomplished short guide to the Hunterian Museum at the Royal College of Surgeons in London.

Jane Hughes Head of Learning and Access at the Hunterian Museum at the Royal College of Surgeons, London praised Joshua saying: "Joshua was the best work experience student we have ever had. He was originally involved in a project we did with his school when he was a Year 8 student. He and some of his fellow students made a film for us. At the opening, our then Director suggested that he come here to do work experience, and he took us up on the offer two years later! We would have him back here again in a heartbeat."

See Joshua and some of his fellow pupils in their Year 8 film about piebaldism.

The film was made as part of a creative partnership project where schools responded to the Hunterian Museum exhibition A Visible Difference: skin, race and identity 1720-1820.

Check out the Hunterian website for more details about school visits and the Museum's learning programme.
