We enjoyed our visit to the Wellcome Center. What a wonderful opportunity as the health company offers rotating scientific/health exhibits for free. We went through the forensic exhibit. It had a lot of information. There is a cafe within the center that offers tasty, healthy food.

I specifically wanted to visit for the current Sexology exhibit. Although not quite what I was expecting it was very interesting, done in very good taste and thought provoking. The staff are on hand from the very start - they where very friendly and had a good knowledge of the content for anyone unsure of the suitability. Found it to... More

I'd been meaning to visit for ages and finally got a date planned with a friend for the last day of the forensics exhibition. As we were coming from different directions we agreed to meet in the museum cafe and that worked well as it is just inside the entrance. Also it opened half an hour before the galleries (11am...

A great place. Some excellent exhibits and galleries. really enjoyed having coffee in the cafe and would have returned for dinner in the restaurant, but it closed at 6! Highly recommended and shows up so many public exhibitions in London who charge, when we've already subsidised then through our taxes. In Washington DC - no charge for some of the... More

I popped in after work on a Thursday (they stay open till 22:00 on thursdays) to see the Institute of Sexology Exhibition and it was really interesting. It was well put together and had such a fantastic range of items to view from ancient Egypt up to 1980s Britain. It was fairly small but plenty to look at, I will... More

The wellcome collection is a great place to visit, especially people who are interested in medical science. There are loads of ancient medical tools. Also the cafe in the museum is a nice place to chill out.

This is a small-ish museum just 5 minuets walk from Euston station. I say smallish but we were there a good 4 and a half hours, so there is plenty to see! Outside the station is a collection of places to eat. There isn't anything great there (just chains) but if you are hungry then they will most certainly do... More

I made a special trip to London to catch the special exhibition on Forensic Medicine. It was well worth it. Outstanding exhibits, well presented, free admission. The adjoining cafeteria has a wide choice and is good value. The book shop is one of the best, carrying on this occasion and good range of serious literature to match the special exhibition....
