The world of electricity

Whether washing machines, fridges or cookers – just imagine how many everyday items would be useless without electricity! We take a look back into the past to find out how electricity came into our homes.

Guide
Just plug it in and it all works! But where is electricity actually generated and how does it get to our homes? How long have we had household electrical appliances and who could afford them?

Our guided tour answers these and many other questions. We take a look at households 100 years ago and get to see first-hand what everyday life was like in the days when our great-grandparents were young.
