My teenage kids and myself absolutely loved the “private” 90 minute explanation and small tour of the laboratory where Alexander Fleming discovered penicillin in 1928. The microbiologist who explained everything to us was incredibly kind, knowledgeable and patient with questions. I would highly recommend a visit to this very small museum in London. We thoroughly liked it!

The Alexander Fleming Museum is where Fleming discovered Penicillin. It's open in the mornings and into the afternoon. It's best to check the opening hours. It is by St Marys hospital in Paddington and has all tbe original equipment that Fleming used and is fascinating. There is lots of history there and well worth a vit. Ann

London has all the fun big attractions. But so much more to see and the Alexander Fleming Lab Museum is a real gem and only 4 mins walk from Paddington. A curious and fun wee place. Great talk from the folks that takes place in the actual lab Fleming worked in and discovered penicillin in. Dont worry about the old buzzer, rickety old door and signage. Press the buzzer! Great fun. And if you have an hour to wait for your train like us - wander round :-)

A small museum located on Norfolk Street. It's open for just a few hours in the morning unless you make special arrangements. 30-40 minutes is all you need. Unfortunately, photos inside the lab are prohibited.
