"Get to Alexander Fleming Laboratory Museum" London Favorite Tip by Imbi

London General: 1,877 reviews and 2,513 photos


Favorite thing: This museum is housed in the very room that Alexander Fleming's worked in his laboratory. For those who don't know, Fleming was the scientist who made the miraculous discovery of penicillin in 1928, thus revolutionising modern medicine.
This museum has displays on Fleming's life, details his chance discovery, and tells of the role of penicillin since 1928 - it has saved more lives than any other discovery this century.

St Mary's Hospital, Praed Street, W2
