We’ll be heading to King’s College London’s Museum of Life Sciences, followed by Science Gallery London’s ‘Mouthy’ season.

The Museum of Life Sciences explores animal, human and plant diversity, with collections originating from research carried out at King’s. These collections include botany, zoology,  pharmacology, microscope slides and craniofacial specimens. We’ll be having a tour from the curatorial staff which will describe how these animal specimens were used for research into human health. Then there will be an opportunity to explore the museum displays.

After all of this, we’ll head to a nearby pub or cafe.
