The Edward Jenner Museum & Old Cyder House
 
The Edward Jenner Museum in Berkeley is situated in The Chantry, the beautiful country home of the world renowned pioneer of vaccination, and celebrates his ground-breaking work.
 
The museum tells the story of Jenner’s discovery of a vaccine for smallpox and the eventual eradication of the disease in 1980 and you can find out more about his fascinating work in other fields of medicine, surgery, natural history, and even ballooning. The rooms have an elegant period-feel including Jenner’s former study and dining room.
 
There are mature gardens of around an acre which are gradually being restored and includes the important thatched Temple of Vaccinia – a rustic summer house in which Jenner treated the poor free of charge.
 
The Old Cyder House Conference Centre which is also set in the grounds of Edward Jenner’s former home, offers meeting rooms with good facilities.
 
Special events are regularly held at The Edward Jenner Museum
