Victorian Speed: The Long History of Fast Living


Stressed out by modern life? So were the Victorians!
Enter the world of Victorian England for this interactive event, and discover the Museum of the History of Science at night.
Explore the hectic pace of the 1800s with Oxford researchers, get involved with Morse code, take a turn at the sexual health tombola, and discover the Victorian's obsession over digestion.
Record your adventure, dress up as a Victorian, and have your photograph taken in our photobooth.
