The world of electricity

Whether washing machines, cookers or fridges – many everyday items would be useless without electricity. We take a look back in time to find out how electricity came into our homes!
Kindergarten & School
2–6 Grade
Just plug it in and it all works! But where is electricity actually generated and how does it get to people’s homes? How long have we had household electrical appliances? How did people actually live in the past without electricity?

Our guided tour answers these and many other questions. And you will get to see first-hand what everyday life was like when your great-grandparents were young. 

Two accompanying adults can participate for free.
