This one is for everything surgery and anatomy related. Might freak some people out though, you’ll turn your head and see human remains in Jars. (Side note: it’s closed at the moment and will be reopening in 2020 but if you go on their site, you’ll see other events they will be holding at different locations)

#2 Geffrye Museum - London

This museum features different rooms that have been recreated after a certain period in time. Gives you a feel of what it was like back in the day beyond looking at pictures.

#3 Ragged School Museum - London

Kind of like the Geffrye Museum but a Victorian school instead.

AKA ‘A Historic House’. The home of Sir John Soane (1753-1837), an architect who collected a crazy amount of art, furniture and architectural ornamentation.

#6 Wellcome Collection - London

Gallery, events, classes, a library, all of it. If you’re a curious person like myself, you will love this one as it’s all based around the ‘whys’ of life. This museum explores medicine, culture, philosophy, psychology and everything of that nature.

#7 International Slavery Museum - Liverpool

What makes this museum different is the fact it explores not only the history of the slave trade but also the present effect and reality of slavery. Also showcases a lot beyond what was learnt in school which is always a good thing.

#8 Bethlem Museum of the mind - beckenham
