VISIT THE 1940S HOUSE
Much as we enjoy the 1940s House being our everyday home, it is always great fun to share it with others, to see it through their eyes and hear their memories. For younger visitors, it is an opportunity to discover how ordinary people lived eighty years ago.
You will see what were the latest ideas in modern home-making and furnishing and how advances in labour-saving technology made life easier and more comfortable. Enjoy your visit!
