Hunter House Victorian Museum in Norfolk, VA is offering free admission on tours through the end of the year! Please bring your friends and family to enjoy this special time of year at the Hunter House! They are open Wednesday through Saturday.
A dishwasher, a pen, aspirin, a gas pump, and jellybeans. What do these things have in common? They were all inventions and products of the Victorian Era. Our summer 2022 exhibit, Thoroughly Modern Victorian: How the Victorian Era Birthed the Modern Age invites you to look at the modern world from the lens of the past. From mail-order catalogs to online shopping, electricity to solar panels, stereoscopes to instagram, the list goes on. Odds are that daily you pick up items and use brands that were created by the Victorians. Over the last century innovations and progress have changed and molded them into what we see today, but many of these items were thought of by the innovative minds of Victorian men and women. Our exhibit aims to explore these inventions and the progress that shaped the world we live in today. On display now through August 27th, 2022. Admission is free, donations encouraged.
Reservations are required. Please call 757-623-9814 or email [email protected] to register for your guided or self-guided tour.
