Travellers who are looking to explore historical artifacts may want to stop by the Hunterian Museum if they're visiting London between now and July 2.

The New York Times reports that the museum will host a number of private collections that are made up of medical and natural historic artifacts as part of its "London's Most Museums: Nature and Medicine on Show."

Exhibit curators are looking to show exactly what old museums in the city had to offer, as the show is a collection of manuscripts, catalogues and some other unusual items that were previously displayed years ago at other establishments.

"One of the exhibition's goals is to show what these institutions were like at the times they existed," Sarah Pearson, curator at the Hunterian, told the news provider. "Some were real visitor attractions that were open to everyone who could afford the entrance fee, while others were private, such as anatomy collections that were only open to medical audiences."

The museum also has such exhibits as "Treasures from the Odontological Collection" and "Extinct."
