My favourite museum in London! Free exhibitions with very captivating subjects. Bonus: the book shop has an amazing choice of interesting books on lots of topic from design to psychology or philosophy.
Fantastic, what gem this place is, the permanent collection was surprisingly fascinating, I didn’t expect to enjoy it as much as I did. Misbehaving bodies was was excellent and took a guided tour, and our guide was very knowledgeable and fostered a very intelligent and interesting discussion among us visitors. Smoke and mirrors was fun too, made me consider a lot that I hadn’t given much thought to.
