The University of Dundee has a wide variety of museum collections acquired since its founding in 1881. These are cared for by Museum Services, which stages regular exhibitions in the Tower Foyer and Lamb Galleries. Collections of medical interest include specimens from the Pathology department, models and instruments from Anatomy and Physiology, instruments and specimens from the Dental School (including an important research collection of forensic dentistry), instruments and equipment from Biological Sciences, and the D'Arcy Thompson Zoology Museum, named in honour of its founder Professor D'Arcy Thompson, who was one of the principal founders of Dundee's Medical School. Museum Services is also jointly responsible for running the Tayside Medical History Museum (see separate entry).
