The first telephone was designed over 140 years ago, but we suspect it wasn’t as simple as just using two cups and some string!
Can this work? How does it work? Come along to the Hands on History Museum and find out. Make your telephone to decorate, before making your first “call”.
*ring ring* Hello – it’s science calling!
The museum is open from 12.00 noon to 4.00 pm every second and fourth Saturday of each month. The Hands on History Museum, in the old Grammar School where William Wilberforce studied, houses the story of Hull and its people. Entry to the museum is free. Hands on History includes a fascinating glimpse into Victorian times, the Story of Hull and also features the Egyptian Gallery. This gallery is home to a genuine 2,600 year old mummy and unique replicas of King Tutankhamen’s treasures.
