Good for kids? Value for money? Worth a visit?

The Alexander Fleming Laboratory Museum in St. Mary’s Hospital tells the life story of this famous Scottish bacteriologist.

His greatest claim to fame was the accidental discovery of penicillin, and you can still see the cramped laboratory where he performed his experiments.

There are also a few videos and medical volunteers on hand to relate their tales about antibiotics.
