Things Exhibition @ The Wellcome Collection

The Welcome Collection is a gem of a museum in London and describes itself as a free destination for the incurably curious. Henry Welcome was the founder and his collection is odd in the extreme with trapanned skulls, a body preserved for hundreds of years in a peat bog, amputation saws and victorian false teeth. There is a collection of contemporary artifacts including a slither of a real human body from head to foot as well as contemporary art which responds to current scientific issues. Part of the exhibition is a collection of 'things no bigger than your head' bought in by the public.
