Things That Make You Go HMMMMMMM.....

WHERE can you find a torture chair, Napoleon’s toothbrush and Florence Nightingale’s slippers? Answer: In a free exhibition that opened in London June 22, 2007.

They are among more than a MILLION bizarre objects stockpiled by eccentric tycoon Sir Henry Wellcome, an obsessive collector.
