A Museum of Modern NatureThe second part of a year-long exploration by the Wellcome Collection into how humans relate to other animals and the world around us. A Museum of Modern Nature asks the question that has captivated philosophers, anthropologists, scientists, ethicists and artists for centuries. With contributions from visitors to the Wellcome Collection, this exhibition considers the idea of a museum of nature. Discover the many and varied ways we are personally connected to the natural world and the implications this has for the planet. The first part, 'Making Nature: How we see animals', continues until 21st May 2017.

 

About Wellcome Collection

A major and fascinating cultural venue, the Wellcome Collection combines three galleries: 'Medicine Man', 'Medicine Now' and 'special exhibitions'. In addition you'll find the famous Wellcome Library, cafe, bookshop and a 'forum' to consider issues of science, health and human identity. The 1,300 objects on display show the great variety of considerations that these topics include. More about Wellcome Collection
