Although from the outside there is a lot of scaffolding, the overall collection is still interesting. The variety on offer can interest all ages but it is over quite quickly. Good points include a calm environment in the cafe and a free cloakroom.

Very good exhibitions - real mix of science, art and humanities - really well thought out. Well worth one or many visits.

The Wellcome Collection is consistently one of the best exhibition venues in London. The masterful curation of each show is astounding. Clearly a great deal of thought goes into the concept and presentation of each exhibition hosted - these usually touch upon art, science, and philosophy. It's not a huge space, but a great deal is packed into each show. Always thought provoking and informative, but also interesting, accessible, and usually fun. The exhibitions often broach deep subject matter, and are on occasion quite moving, but always delivered with a lightness of touch. Looking forward to their new launch. Definitely go!

Interesting exhibitions but the place is undergoing building works at the moment so would like to go again when its all done. We have been here for lunch a couple of times too. Lovely potatos bravas soup (yes, you heard me right!). The quiches are good too.
