Objectives

Dr Jenner's House, Museum and Garden is a historic house museum and heritage visitor attraction of world importance managed by the Jenner Trust a Charitable Incorporated Organisation. It is housed in the Chantry, the house where Edward Jenner lived and pioneered vaccination against smallpox. Our charitable mission is to showcase Jenner's life, achievements and scientific legacy as father of Immunology. The importance of vaccines to human and animal health as exemplified by the eradication of smallpox are particularly important messages.

Activities

As well as opening to visitors as a museum, we provide educational programs to students of all ages, regular talks and events, an informative web site and access to our archives for research.

To do this we have to be innovative in order to generate sufficient  income to preserve the Chantry and continue to improve the effectiveness of our promotion of Jenner's legacy.
