The Wellcome Collection

A brand spanking new museum to house the fascinating artefacts collected by entrepeneur, philanthropist, science patron and pioneer of aerial photography, Henry Wellcome.  The permanent exhibition includes such oddities and coups as Napoleon's toothbrush, a lock of George III's hair, ancient Japanese sex aids, artificial limbs, chastity belts, a shrunken head, diagnostic dolls, a mummified man (see above), skeletons and phallic tribal amulets. 

There's also a cafe and Blackwell's bookshop in the foyer. 

Free entry.
