Alexander Fleming Laboratory Museum

On 3rd September 1928 at his laboratory in St Mary's Hospital, Alexander Fleming made a breakthrough with the chance discovery of the life-saving antibiotic penicillin which revolutionised medicine and earned him a Nobel Prize.

The Alexander Fleming Laboratory Museum has reconstructed and restored the cramped laboratory to its original appearance, complete with bacteriological equipment and penicillin artefacts, a video presentation and an exhibition about Fleming's life and work.
