The Wellcome Collection is a high-tech, free museum located within the headquarters of the Wellcome Trust (the second largest medical-research charity in the world). It's home to a unique permanent collection, a world-class library, a café, and a bookshop. Over his lifetime, American-born pharmacist, philanthropist, and businessman Henry Wellcome collected over a million and a half weird, disturbing, and wonderful objects, some of which (amputation saws, a human heart, ancient Japanese sex toys, a mummified Peruvian body) are on display here in modern surroundings. The bold program of temporary exhibitions—dedicated to eclectic themes such as Addicts and Apothecaries or plain old dirt—tends to get a lot of attention, and rightly so.—Giovanna Dunmall

Open Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays 10 am to 6 pm, Thursdays 10 am to 10 pm, and Sundays 11 am to 6 pm.
