Fascinating collections, excellent accessibility + really friendly staff
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Walking Aid
The Wellcome Collection is a free museum which specialises in health and health related sciences. It's fun and informative an has both permanent galleries and temporary exhibitions which cover a diverse range of topics. Also located in the building is it's library which is free to join, a café on the ground floor and a restaurant on 2nd floor, both offering a delicious range of food and a shop selling books and quirky gifts. They also hold regular free events, on both a prebookable and drop in basis. It has excellent disabled access.
Transport & Parking
The Wellcome Collection is centrally located on Euston Road. It's almost opposite Euston Station and also nearby is Euston Square, Warren Street and King's Cross stations. There are a number of buses that stop very close by. I travelled on public transport to get there and it was only a 2 minute walk from getting off the bus.
There's automated doors at the entrance. Then immediately in front of you is a staircase and a platform lift to take you to the main floor. There's large lifts to each floor and accessible toilets.
There's disabled accessible toilets on each floor and these are clearly signposted. They are spacious, clean and with alarm and grab rails.
The staff were excellent, helpful and friendly. When I arrived there was a member of staff at the entrance and they were proactive in assisting me in using the passenger lift. There's more staff at reception and at the exhibitions.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
I'm a regular visitor and I enjoy their exhibitions and events, but sometimes I just pop in like I did on this occasion to go to their café as it's good to now somewhere to meet friends were there is nice food and good accessibility. The galleries are closed on Mondays but the café, restaurant and shop are open.
