Welcome to the Museum of Technology, The History of Gadgets and Gizmos

The Museum spans that very small period in history from 1850 - 1980 in which the technological revolution took place.The collection traces the progress of electronic and engineered artefacts including telegraphy, telephony, audio, military and civil communications, warfare, photography, scientific and electrical domestic equipment.

Please see here to find out about visiting days and times to our fully wheelchair accessible museum, or call us on 01945 700772. For the latest news about our museum read our Facebook Page .

The Museum is now closed until May 2018 but still taking bookings for group visits of ten or more.

From Blueprint to First Visitors

We are proud to announce that the Museum is now open to the public after redevelopment.

The museum flourished in Hemel Hempstead for over ten years, but as the collection grew we knew we would have to find larger premises, these were hard to come by, so the decision was made to build a place which we could fit the collection into.

We moved the collection from Hemel Hempstead in 2012 and work on the new building started shortly after.

Now four years later each technology can be displayed in its own area, the result is stunning.

Donít take our word for it, come and visit us and see for yourselves how technology has changed the way we live between 1830 and 1980.

We offer something to amaze all age groups and Iím sure you will leave with the immortal words WOW on your lips.

Our museum 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 would be very happy to welcome any volunteers who might want to get involved with, (what we think) will be a brilliant addition to a beautiful area.
