  • I happened to pass by, so I entered the museum with a feeling of rain shelter. On the main floor, i think it's a replica of the body of the body, of course, but it was a rather demanding content lol on the library floor, people taking naps, people studying, etc., were hesitant to take pictures because it was a quiet space. A very mysterious, chaotic and tricky museum. If you have time, please come and see us.

  • 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.
