Why locals love it

Wellcome Collection defines itself as "The free destination for incurably curious". People genuinely love this place for the choice of exhibition out of ordinary – generally free – and the incredibly selection of books either at their Library or at the shop. Human Anatomy, Oriental Religions, Tattoo and much more at your disposal!

Why you should visit it

Check out what's on at the Wellcome Collection while you're in London. You will be pleasantly surprised by unusual exhibitions and events. From "Tibet's Secret Temple" to "Death: A self-portrait", or discussions about ancient ills and ancient cures, any collection there has a special value you will not find anywhere else. And it is all FREE!

Special tip

If you love Anatomy, visit the Reading Room on 4th floor and fall in love with their huuge anatomy books and pictures!

Really interesting art pieces, and a beautiful setting. Lovely just to sit in the cafe, or wander up and see some of the exhibition

The Wellcome Collection is a fantastic, free london location for visitors who are curious about art & science. I highly recommend this if you like art galleries too as you'll see a range of intriguing images and ideas. Exhibitions change at every 6 months or faster. There's a good cafe that sells delicious tea/coffee, fresh juices, cakes and healthy meals. There's also a bookshop/souvenir shop

Even if the current exhibit doesnt take your fancy it's worth going for the cafe and shop. The shop alone is worth the visit and has the most amazing books and science-themed gifts!
