The Wellcome Collection is a museum displaying a mixture of medical artifacts and original artworks exploring “ideas about the connections between medicine, life, and art.” The museum offers contemporary and historic exhibitions and collections, the Wellcome Library, a café, and a bookshop. The Wellcome Collection was founded by Sir Henry Solomon Wellcome (1853–1936). An enthusiastic traveler, Henry Wellcome, amassed a massive collection of books, paintings, and objects on the theme of the historical development of medicine worldwide.
