Welcome to the MUSEUM OF TECHNOLOGY. The Museum spans that very small period in history in which the technological revolution took place. The items represent the evolution of electrical, electronic and warfare technology between the period 1850 and 1980. Museum curator Rosie Hourihane invites you to look around our web site.

Please contact us if you have any queries.

Having problems donating

Our museum is funded and run entirely by volunteers. If you have enjoyed visiting our web site, a donation, however small, will help us continue our mission, to rescue, preserve and display early technology for the education and enjoyment of all - thank you.

Offers you a chance to step back in time

Remember "A & B" Public Telephones, Batteries you had to fill up, Crystal Sets, Gas Masks, Morse Keys, Frame Aerials?
Then you will want to see our collection of EARLY TECHNOLOGY.

As well as all that

Our collection of WAR MEMORABILIA has artefacts from the Somme and a range of items from the Second World War.
We may be small but we've a lot to show

Building Progress


We have moved to Throckenholt

The museum is currently closed to visitors as we have moved to Throckenholt which is 10 miles from Spalding, 16 miles from Peterborough, 8 miles from Wisbech and close to a little village called Parson Drove.

We expect to be opening in Autumn 2014. You can see our progress on Facebook here.

Wanted, Volunteer Carpenters

Painting has gone well, the Workshop is complete and the East Wing has got a lovely painted ceiling. Soon Trevor will have the workshop up and ready to construct cabinets, that will be another auspicious day. The lighting system is being installed too. So all in all I think we're making good progress. We desperately want to have an Autumn Opening, with as much on display as we can manage. If there are any local carpenters reading this and can spare us a few hours to help that would be great, just give us a ring on 01945 700772, I'll supply coffee and biscuits and you will have the satisfaction of volunteering for a great local museum, Thanks.

Please ring Rosie on 01945 700 772 for further information
