© 2010 Museum of Communication


We mount themed exhibitions throughout the summer months, which are designed to stimulate, entertain and educate the public.

We run a very popular series of monthly lectures on a wide variety of subjects. We are also developing an education programme, aimed at encouraging young people to consider a career in science and engineering.

Although the exhibition is closed from October to April, you can still come and meet us. You will find our volunteers at work on various projects every Wednesday and Saturday between 11 am and 4 pm. Just ring the doorbell! 

If  you wish to visit at other times, please phone 01592 874836 or email mocenquiries@tiscali.co.uk, to make arrangements.


Our 2011 Exhibition, entitled Words, Wires and Waves to the World Wide Web will open as usual in May and run until September. More details nearer the time.
