A visit to the newly designed Wellcome Collection Reading Room

wellcome-reading-rooms-11The Wellcome Collection on Euston Road bills itself  as for the ‘incurably curious’ and the redesigned Reading Room upstairs does not disappoint…

Open to all and free to use, the space offers books and magazines to read, interesting people to talk to, objects to handle, medical artefacts to wonder at, paintings to see, cushions to lounge on, windows to look out of, games to play, and events to attend – all in the name of exploring the connections between medicine, life and art in the past, present and future.

Look, touch, read, collect, share
I love that the letters in this sign are made up of small plastic ‘push-pin’ letters.
