We use our smartphones for sending texts, browsing the web, taking pictures, watching movies and keeping in touch with friends. But how did we communicate before smartphones? Find out at this interactive exhibition, where you’ll be able to send messages with flags, use Morse Code, program retro computers and find out about some of the latest developments in communications.
