Venue DescriptionPlease note, Wellcome Collection will be closed to the public from 18:00 on Monday March 16 2020 for the foreseeable future. Following careful consideration of the current course of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to implement a planned closure of Wellcome Collection. We have made this decision in the interests of the health and wellbeing of our staff, service partners, tenants, contractors and visitors. We are not aware of any specific health risk to staff or visitors. *** Wellcome Collection is a free museum and library that aims to challenge how we all think and feel about health. Through contemporary and historic exhibitions and collections, lively public events, digital, broadcast and publishing, we create opportunities for people to think deeply about the connections between science, medicine, life and art. The venue, at 183 Euston Road, offers visitors a café, a shop, a restaurant and conference facilities. We are part of the Wellcome Trust, which was established under Sir Henry Wellcome's will in 1936. Wellcome exists to improve health by helping great ideas to thrive. We support researchers, we take on big health challenges, we campaign for better science, and we help everyone get involved with science and health research. Access Policy: Our Access Policy sets out Wellcome Collection’s commitment to maximising access to our museum and library, and to identifying the ways in which we achieve this across the organisation. The policy relates to all collections held by Wellcome Collection as well as our services, activities, facilities, content and programmes on site, off site and online.
We want you to feel included in all that Wellcome Collection has to offer. Our ongoing commitment is to make our building, services and programme as accessible and inclusive as possible, removing and reducing barriers to visiting us.
