The Wellcome Collection uses exhibitions, collections, live programming, digital broadcasting, and publishing to build opportunities for people to reflect on the relationships between science, medicine, life, and art. Wellcome Collection is a part of Wellcome, a global charitable foundation that supports science to solve the public’s urgent health challenges.
Wellcome supports the research into life, health, and well-being while focussing on three worldwide health challenges: mental health, infectious disease, and the climate. The Wellcome Collection’s tenth anniversary was in 2017, and the museum embarked on a time of reflection and review.
The team formulated a document that clarifies the Wellcome Collection’s mission as a museum and library, their core goals for the next five years, and how they are ready to achieve them. Many use the Wellcome Collection’s resources for research of all kinds, whether it’s used for an artist’s inspiration or an academic researcher, or simply if you’re curious about someone in their exhibitions.
The collections here offer a wide variety of topics relating to health and the human experience, all from recently published books, historical manuscripts, and objects. The Wellcome Collection constantly updates and adds to their collections to encompass a greater diversity of voices and lived experiences.
You can find the Wellcome Collection’s collections in the library at Wellcome Collection and on display at the London Science Museum’s medical galleries. That said, the Wellcome Collection is currently closed due to the pandemic, so we encourage you to explore the thousands of digitized items from their online collections.
The Wellcome Collection strives to deliver a consistently high level of visitor care to all. The team is dedicated to ensuring that visitors experience high-quality service, listening, and responses to their comments, questions, and suggestions for improvement. By doing so, the museum hops every visitor will leave the Wellcome Collection eager to return and recommend it to others.
