Wellcome Collection is the free museum and library for the incurably curious. It explores the connections between medicine, life and art in the past, present and future. Here you can enjoy contemporary and historical exhibitions, a word-renowned...more
Considering they have a collection of over 1 million artefacts, there really isn’t that much on display. We were hoping to see something a little bit more gory in relation to modern medical science/history. However, it is very nicely laid out and styled, and if...More
If you don’t fancy loitering on the concourse of Euston station then the Wellcome Collection (and associated cafe) could be just what you need.

Well, I got easily distracted by their displays - they are very quirky, and I could have spent much longer in their main room. If you have lunch and do the additional temporary exhibitions you could do four or five - just depends on what you want to do and how much time you have... Not very helpful - but if you read all the notices, will take longer...Sorry about this - depends on too many factors!
