All the items on display represent the evolution of electrical, electronic, and warfare advances around 1850 - 1980. Our collection of early technology ranges from the very earliest electrical experiments to a selection of induction coils, which can be demonstrated.

A Loan Box which shows the development of telephones, cameras and gramophones, in our experiance, being able to touch and feel the artefacts encourages debate and a greater understanding of how these items were used during the 1940's, 50's, 60's and 80's

Videos of Working Artefacts on E2BN

http://www.museumoftechnology.org.uk

The museum has a gallery on the E2BN website, which include Domestic equipment, WW1 & WW2, Photography, Gramophones and Weapons.
Thanks to a grant from the MLA Strategic Commissioning "Learning Links" we have been able to film many of our working artefacts, these too have been put onto E2BN with links from our own website, being able to look at and hear how old gramophones and telephones were used is a great resource for teachers wanting to explain old technology to their pupils.
