Attraction Information

  • Museums and Art Galleries icon Museums and Art Galleries

Suitable for ages: Older Children (9-12) and Teenagers (13-18)

Venue type: Indoor, Outdoor

Dr Jenners House is a really interesting place to visit, especially if you are a fan of science or history.
Smallpox, which Jenner called the Speckled Monster, killed 10% of the population, rising to 20% in cities, where it spread more easily. It accounted for a third of child deaths! Discover how the World Heath Organisation managed to conquer this disease only 30 years ago.
Your visit will start with really informative introductory video, then a tour with friendly guides along the way, who really know their stuff. Make sure you don't miss the guided “Ghosts in the Attic' exhibition, its brilliant so you might want to book it in advance.
The displays combine history and science to focus on the important work of this man, how he did it, and the building where it happened. There are also beautiful grounds to explore, with a mysterious woodland area and a lawn that is perfect for a picnic.
Other things to look out for are a wild flower meadow and an insect hotel. Make sure you leave time to see the Temple of Vaccina, which Jenner used as a surgery to vaccinate the poor people in his district for free.
