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.

Craig’s review of Hunterian Museum This is one museum that I've never bothered with before, but I actually found it quite interesting. I'm not sure that I'd recommend it to tourists, though. It's more for medical students, I think, and for local Londoners who have seen all of the obvious attractions, and are searching around for something a bit different. It's basically a big collection of human bones and sliced-up… continued
