William Wilberforce was a keen supporter of science and the Georgian age was one of serious experimentation. Bubbles were studied by the Royal Institute, a place where top British scientists came together to share their research. Come together with us at Wilberforce House Museum and blow your own giant bubbles, as well as creating your own bubble artwork. Then explore our Georgian collections in our wonderful period buildings.
Wilberforce House is the birthplace of William Wilberforce, famous campaigner against the slave trade. Admission to Wilberforce House is free. The museum tells the story of the transatlantic slave trade and its abolition, as well as dealing with contemporary slavery. Galleries also offer a fascinating glimpse into West African culture.
