Alexander Fleming Laboratory MuseumVisit this surprisingly humble laboratory in which Alexander Fleming discovered penicillin. Now restored to the musty, dusty cramped conditions of September 1928, visitors can retrace the unforeseen emergence of a life-saving drug that changed the course of medical history.

A colourful collection of displays and videos retell his discovery. The reconstructed lab is both poignant and hugely authentic, peppered with old-fashioned scientific equipment and furnishings. The museum was opened in 1993 by St Mary’s NHS Trust and is a worthwhile, thought-provoking journey off the beaten track of London’s more customary attractions.
