The story of electricity is the story of life itself. For centuries this invisible yet vital force has captivated inventors, scientists and artists alike. Join us on a tour of 'Electricity: The spark of life' and explore electricity's contradictory life-giving and death-dealing extremes.

Our Visitor Experience Assistant Elizabeth Shuck, trained in audio description techniques by VocalEyes, has designed this tour for visitors who are blind or partially sighted.

Places are free but very limited. If you would like to come along, email access@wellcomecollection.org or call 020 7611 2222.
