The Connected Earth gallery, tells the story of human communication from smoke signals and cannons sounding the alarm right through to the very latest in phone technology.

Learn to send and receive Morse code, practice sending signals up the railway line 19th century style, visit the police phone box, and play  at being a switchboard operator at our fully working telephone exchange.

“It’s the best museum that we’ve been to in terms of “hands on” stuff.  I had to drag my five children out the Connected Earth gallery after two hours because I was desperate for lunch!” Jon S
