Getting around the building

Wellcome Collection – and the building it’s in – is for everyone. You don’t need to be a student, researcher or academic to enjoy it. Our main entrance for visitors is at 183 Euston Road. There’s a lift for wheelchair users, or anyone else who needs it.

Our information point is in the atrium on the ground floor. You’ll find someone here to answer all your questions about our collections, facilities and events.

Ask our people about special events, opening times, guided tours of the building or where you can find adapted toilets.

The information point is also the best place to start if you want to know about lost property.
