Medicine and healthcare are important to everybody’s well-being. They are also fascinating!  Find out what your elders mean when they say ‘spend a penny’ and hunt through the galleries to find a merman.

Medicine: The Wellcome Galleries tells the story of how medicine and health care have shaped our lives for the past 500 years.

We’ve created a fun activity trail, packed with activities and challenges, to help lead you and your educational group through these galleries. To begin, download the Marvels of Medicine KS2 activity trail.

The trail includes a map of the galleries, objects to hunt for and imagination-tickling questions to get everyone thinking.
