Finally, taking top honors for my favorite museum in London, and also one of my favorite museums anywhere: the Old Operating Theater Museum. I visited this immediately after accidentally finding myself at an exhibit at the Museum of London that detailed the link between grave-robbing, murder, and medical dissection in the early 19th century. I couldn't have planned a better pairing!
