Details

This new family friendly exhibition was inspired by some of the thousands of creative designs registered with the Board of Trade from 1839 onwards which are housed at The National Archives.

See contemporary technology alongside eye-catching inventions from the Victorian era – including a ventilating top hat and a typewriter for visually impaired people.

With hands-on interactive activities, visitors of all ages can try their hand at designing and inventing.

This is the first exhibition ever to tour from The National Archives.
