Wellcome Collection: the free destination for the incurably curious

Wellcome Collection is a unique mix of galleries and events, the world-famous Wellcome Library, a café, bookshop and conference centre. It brings to life Sir Henry Wellcome's vision of a place where people could learn more about the development of medicine through the ages and across cultures.

We are currently investing in a major development project to transform Wellcome Collection into a bigger and bolder venue. Building work began in August 2013 and we will be revealing our new spaces from autumn 2014 until we're due to finish the project in spring 2015.

Wellcome Collection will remain open throughout the development, but some of our galleries (including 'Medicine Man') will be closed temporarily.

See what will be open for your visit.

If you'd like to drop in to see where we're heading, the cafe and bookshop are open as usual.

Admission to Wellcome Collection is free - treat your mind to a visit soon.
