This is the kind of place that makes us wish we had four hands so we could give it four thumbs up. Set up at the bequeath of Sir Henry Wellcome, pharmaceutical entrepreneur, philanthropist and extremely wealthy man, this place carries on his good work by exploring the interconnections between science, art and life. Not only does it put on super interesting free exhibitions, it has a strange and spacious library (with over 750,000 books), a big cafe and shop area, scientific oddities at every turn and lecture halls which host fascinating discussions. Running through everything they do here is the desire to have us reflecting on what it means to be human - and it really works. The curation is top notch and there's definitely a big budget to splurge with shows that are always startlingly high-tech and impressive.
