About the trail

Bringing together objects and paintings from the Wellcome Collection and the National Gallery, this trail investigates how these collections help us understand what it is to be alive.

Explore the ways in which we respond to birth and death, find relief from pain and how we navigate the relationship between scientific understanding and faith. 

Who is the trail for?

It is aimed at adults.
