Communications gallery looks at the history of radio, telephone and the internet.
LONDON, September 10, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Later this year, London's Science Museum will open a free permanent landmark communication gallery, the first in the UK dedicated to the history of information and communication technology and featuring more than 800 objects from the museum's world class collection. The Science Museum is located in South Kensington, an area of London well-served by attractions. As well as the Science Museum, you can find the V&A and Natural History Museum, the Royal Albert Hall, the stunning Brompton Oratory and a wide range of shops and cheap London restaurants. For more information on all these attractions, see

The new gallery will open on 25th October, in time for school half term, and is called Information Age: Six Networks That Changed Our World. It will explore the remarkable technological breakthroughs that have transformed how we communicate over the last 200 years, from the first transatlantic telegraph cable that connected Europe and North America to the advanced computing power of the modern smartphone.

It will feature more than 800 objects and state-of-the-art interactive displays that will bring to life the dramatic personal stories of those whose lives were changed by each new wave of technology. It will be the single latest gallery inside the museum, exploring the six networks that helped connect the modern world: the electric telegraph, the telephone exchange, radio and television broadcasting, satellite communications, computer networks and mobile communications.

At its centre will sit the spectacular six-metre high aerial inductance coil from Rugby Radio Station. This enormous and strangely beautiful object resembles a series of giant spiders' webs and was once part of the most powerful radio transmitter in the world. Other key objects include the original Marconi radio transmitter that made the first public broadcast in 1922, two of the world's fastest supercomputers in the 1960s and the NeXT cube, the original machine used by Sir Tim Berners-Lee to design the World Wide Web in 1989.
