In 1871 the Great Western Railway Hospital in Swindon welcomed their first patient. 150 years later in 2020 and 2021, STEAM Museum welcomed doctors, nurses, other healthcare workers and volunteers vaccinating patients against COVID19.


To help them relax during their breaks, the Swindon Art on Tour Team have curated a display of artworks selected from the collections at Swindon Museum and Art Gallery.The artworks explore health and wellbeing through themes including creativity, nature and exercise.


Thanks to Art UK’s Curation tool, we are also able to make a digital version of the exhibition available. For more digital outreach from Swindon Museum and Art Gallery, please visit www.swindonmuseumandartgallery.org.uk/artontour.
