The Secret Life of the Home at the Science Museum

The Secret Life of the Home gallery at the Science Museum opened in the autumn of 1995. The gallery includes a display of tea and coffee making machines. My Teasmade book tells the story of the design of the gallery, the acquisition of its teasmades, and the opening of the exhibit. I visited the museum in 2000 at the beginning of my teasmade journey, and again in 2019. Here are some photographs of the exhibit which I took in 2019.
