    This should be on everyone's list of places to see in London. The Tibetan Buddhism exhibition was profound and the exhibitions on Consciousness featuring in 2016 are gonna be incredible!

    The reading room is great for families or if you're looking for a cosy place to chill on your own. Great comfy corners to read a book or work on your laptop and lots of interesting things to look at.

    "Wellcome" is name of the founder. If you're expecting a "welcome to London" kind of deal, you're in the wrong museum :) But they have nice small exhibitions (free!) and a lovely cafe & shop.
