Attraction Information

Museum of Victorian Science offers an experience that started with a guide around the jam packed shelves, with demonstrations of some of the more interesting items.

Things to look out for include railway tubes, Jacob's Ladder and a telegraph system. This is a great way to find out what young Victorians were taught, with plenty of crackling and flame filled demonstrations.

You will find out about how the electro static generator was developed, and the discovery of x-rays. Learn about the discovery of the electron and check out Dr Frankenstein's lab, complete with lightning, thunder and sparks!

The 2 hour show is full of fascinating information and instruments, plus the history of the men who created and used them.

If you like the R.I. Christmas Lectures and Professor Brian Cox, then you will love this is a really unique experience that will blow your mind.

You do need to go in a group and to book ahead so plan it as a half day out with your mates or family.
