The Virtual House

Use your computer mouse to take a tour around this typical modern house.

As you can see, the living room, kitchen, bathroom, dining room and bedrooms are stocked full of the latest domestic items.

If you'd taken a guided tour of this same house twenty, forty or sixty years ago, things would have looked very different. The way people lived in the past without all the modern technology we take for granted would also have been very different.

Click on any item inside the different 2004 rooms to enter a Memory Store archive full of photos and advertisements. Discover lots of interesting facts about everyday objects; how they work, how they've changed over the years, and how they make a difference to our lives.
