Wellcome Collection

If you fancy something quirky, sample this collection by U.S. pharmaceutical millionaire and philanthropist Henry Wellcome (1853–1936). Styled as "the free destination for the incurably curious," this museum explores the connections between medicine, life and art (some exhibits may not be suitable for younger children). Comprising an estimated 1 million items, the collection includes Napoleon's toothbrush, Horatio Nelson's razor, and Charles Darwin's walking stick. There are also anatomical models, Peruvian mummies, and Japanese sex aids as well as two permanent exhibitions to inspire debate, Medicine Man and Medicine Now. Watch out for original art works in the lobby by Picasso (just above the entrance when you come in) and Anthony Gormley.
