How did you learn the alphabet when you were young? I had books and posters telling me that 'A is for Apple', 'B is for Ball', and 'C is for Cat'. In case you need a brush up on the sequence, then visit Wellcome collection for The Human Condition . Open until the 12th October, the exhibition explores medical science through an illustrated idiosyncratic A to Z, which combines the museum's weird and wonderful collection of objects, medical artefacts, paintings, photographs, and sculptures, alongside contemporary works.

Leaving fruit, toys, and pets behind, now you will find that A is for Acts of Faith, B is for Birthdays, C is for Chemical Life Support, and Z is for Zoonoses.

Each letter will give you a different feature to examine, such as the first test-tube baby, Florence Nightingale speaking, and sexual foreplay in a porcelain fruit bowl.

A group of experts will be giving drop in workshops on fascinating subjects such as neuroscience, phantom limb syndrome, and teaching you how to bind a foot, perform trephination, and phrenology. These will take place every day between 11.30am–12.00pm and 2.30pm–3.00pm, and also at 6.30pm–7.00pm on Thursdays.
