  • Visitor Information

The laboratory, where many of Michael Faraday's most important discoveries were made, has been restored to the form it was known to have in 1852. The adjacent museum houses a unique collection of original apparatus arranged to illustrate the more significant aspects of Faraday's contribution to science. The museum is of particular interest to those interested in electricity and magnetism, or cool-looking old scientific kit.
