Visit the Institute of Sexology and See the New Staircase at the Wellcome Collection London

‘The Institute of Sexology’ exhibition at the Wellcome Collection in London runs until 22 September 2015.

You’re not allowed to take photos in the Institute, but the video below gives an outline of the exhibition.

Having worked as an interviewer on the second National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles in 1999, I found the filmed interviews with the four leading members of the research team fascinating. On the whole I did get a positive response from interviewees to the survey, but I was glad that the most personal questions were in a self completion section.

The day when I visited the Wellcome Collection was one day prior to the public opening of the new staircase  designed by architects Wilkinson Eyr, who are Stirling Prize winners. This meant that I wasn’t able to climb the staircase, so could only take photos from the ground floor.

I recommend that you go for the lunch buffet at the nearby Diwana Vegetarian Restaurant in Drummond Street when visiting the Wellcome Collection.
