The Wellcome Collection is a museum displaying a mixture of medical artefacts 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).
