Get inspired by the curious medical objects behind the scenes at the Science Museum and Wellcome Collection’s stores at Blythe House Olympia. Join us for a special tour of these unique and distinctive collections with Collections Officer Natasha Logan.

This will be followed by a hands-on workshop lead by artist Sheila Ghelani. This event will ignite your imagination and creativity whilst laying bare fascinating developments in medical history and the systems of care associated with medical collections. This is a very special opportunity and due to strict regulations capacity is very limited.

This tour is a promenade experience. There will be a lot of walking, please wear suitable footwear. To ensure a prompt start at 10 we recommend attendees arrive by 9.45.

Due to the nature of this tour and workshop it will not be possible to admit latecomers.

As museum store, Blythe House is only open to the public by appointment and is not fully accessible. If you are a wheelchair user or have other access requirements please contact and we will do our best to facilitate your needs.
