This is a fantastic little museum with free general admission as with most of London's museums. The permanent exhibitions alone are worth popping into. We also had an afternoon tea in the restaurant. The staff are friendly and the whole place has such a cozy...More

I had a rare time to myself on a cold London February day. Although cold the day itself was spectacular, sunny with bright blue skies. We were staying close to Kings Cross and walking up Euston St. I stumbled upon this unique museum. Being in...More

Small-scale exhibitions by most London museum standards, but creatively presented, and delightfully graphic! Enjoyable way to pass an hour or so.

Interesting, if quirky exhibition just opposite Euston Station. The exhibitions are free. There is also a great cafe and gift shop with some very unusual products. (Lifelike hearts made of chocolate!)

If you have a thing for medicine history, the macabre, or oddities in general, this collection is easily one of the best with free access to public you will find, both in terms of quality of the objects and pertinence.

A wonderful visit with my three teenage children, we were all fascinated by the large, diverse and sometimes bizarre items on display. Lots of information on everything available - via handhelds if you want. So many interesting things, we were talking about them later. You...More

It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.
Despite an understandable popularity with students,
tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and

I would say 2 hours. There is a well stocked book store, as good as Foyles, ans an excellent restaurant which has an emphasis on fruit and vegetable- based meals.
