Welcome to the Mental Health Museum


The Mental Health Museum is a unique museum in the heart of the Fieldhead site in Wakefield. It is run by South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

The museum houses a remarkable collection of mental health related objects that span the history of mental health care from the early 19th century through to the present day.

The museum is going through a fantastic and exciting programme of development and is changing as we speak. To allow for the development of a new exhibition the museum is currently closed. It will re open on Wednesday 29th April 2015.

Please explore our website for more information about the museum and the work that we do.
