This tiny museum is simply awesome. I am not even a science person and I loved it. The history here is amazing. If you ever took penicillin, or even know about penicillin, you should go to this museum. The museum is the lab of Alexander...More

The museum itself is small, is Fleming's lab, which is just a room inside the hospital. However, the story presented is very interesting ! You are first watching a 10 minutes movie about Fleming and his discovery. Then you go to his lab, which contains...More

Felt like a personal tour of Fleming's work place. Small, beautifully laid out and very helpful curators. You only need 45 minutes or so to see it so go if you are at Paddington and have any interest in the discovery of a drug that...More
