A nostalgic journey through
200 years of consumer culture

Our collection takes visitors on a nostalgic journey through 200 years of social change, culture and lifestyle. It is an exciting new way of looking at history through the things that generations of families have thrown away. It’s a journey back through the memories of your childhood, all brought back to life again by our Time Tunnel – a fascinating insight into how we have lived since Victorian times.
