Wellcome Collection

19th-century collector Henry Wellcome’s medical antiquities, plus hi-tech modern displays and art. Wellcome Collection is a free museum and library that aims to challenge how we all think and feel about health. Through exhibitions, collections, live programming, digital, broadcast and publishing, we create opportunities for people to think deeply about the connections between science, medicine, life and art.

We are part of Wellcome, which supports science to solve the urgent health challenges facing everyone. Wellcome supports discovery research into life, health and wellbeing, and is taking on three worldwide health challenges: mental health, infectious disease and climate.

On our tenth anniversary in 2017, we embarked on a period of reflection and review. We created a document that sets out a mission for Wellcome Collection as a museum and library, our main objectives for the next five years, and how we are organised to achieve them.
