Alexander Fleming Museum, London

Explore the Alexander Fleming Museum on your university or college trip to London.

The Alexander Fleming Museum is situated in St Mary's Hospital, where Fleming originally discovered the antibiotic penicillin in 1928; a breakthrough that revolutionised medicine and earned Fleming a Nobel Prize.

Visitors to the Museum can explore Fleming's laboratory, restored to its 1928 condition, and follow his story of the discovery and development of penicillin.

We can also organise for your group to attend presentations in Fleming’s laboratory, which can be tailor-made to their age, attainment level and interest.
