The technology behind communication has changed the world. Mobiles, fibre optics, the World Wide Web, radio and television would not have been possible without the development of the telegraph and early wireless technology.

We are here to tell part of this story; from the first use of electricity to how we communicate today. How cable communication and early wireless technology came to change our perceptions and our everyday lives.

A hidden network of undersea cables keeps us communicating by phone and internet. Discover how they got there and how they work with this award-winning interactive exhibition. Explore the amazing secret WW2 tunnels and don a hard hat to climb escape stairs.
