Wellcome Collection is a free museum and library exploring health and human experience.

The museum's permanent galleries connect science, medicine, life and art in thought-provoking and unexpected ways. Recent temporary exhibitions have covered a diverse range of topics from the psychology of magic to representations of chronic illness.

Upstairs, the Reading Room is home to more than a thousand books - but isn't just for reading. You can discover more than 100 historical objects, play 19th century board games, take part in a pop-up event, or strike up a conversation with a stranger.

Enjoy a relaxed break in the cafe, or the Wellcome Kitchen restaurant. Wellcome Kitchen offers delicious lunches, lighter plates, or afternoon tea.
