The Alexander Fleming Laboratory Museum, London

St Mary’s Hospital is home to the Alexander Fleming Laboratory Museum. Fleming discovered the antibiotic penicillin at St Mary’s Hospital in 1928, a breakthrough that revolutionised medicine and earned him a Nobel Prize.

Visitors to the Museum can see Fleming’s laboratory, restored to its 1928 condition, and explore the story of Fleming and the discovery and development of penicillin through displays and video.

In 1999, the Museum was declared an International Historic Chemical Landmark by the American Chemical Society and the Royal Society of Chemistry, and received a San Marino Idea Award for penicillin as one of the five greatest advances of the 20th century. In 2000 it received an award from The Times for penicillin as a national millennium.
