Museum Of Memories

By following the journey of our vibrant social history, it’s possible to see the origins of Britain’s consumer society, the changes in taste and tempo, the whims of style and fashion, the advents of aviation, the gradual emancipation of women and the disappearance of the domestic servant.

£3.00

This exhibition has been created from those things normally thrown away, such as magazines, sweet wrappers, advertising posters, postcards, radios and breakfast cereal packs. These are remarkable survivors from the past, and when displayed together, they conjure up a rich tapestry of the British way of life.

From Spangles, Dan Dare and ration books to Watneys Party Seven, Rock'n'Roll and the Spice Girls, this time machine will revive powerful memories of days gone by, as well as vividly conjuring up the lifestyle and culture of visitors’ parents' and grandparents' worlds.

Starting in Victorian times, this journey through 150 years of British history is laid out decade by decade. Tracing the arrival of favourite brands like Cadbury, Kellogg's and Colgate, it captures the genius of toys such as Meccano, Hornby and Monopoly, the evolution of travel and the way that cinema and radio has transformed entertainment.

It’s a fascinating journey that takes you from Victorian times right up to the present day.

Arcade Games

Over 500 games to play on! From the very latest games to all your favourites, including: air hockey, video games, dance stages, shooting galleries, penny pushers, novelty cranes and many more, you’re spoilt for choice in our arcade.
