Discover how we came to cook in today’s kitchens. ‘The Changing Domestic’ is a new display from Elmbridge Museum that charts kitchenware and cooking equipment from the Victorian era to the 1980s. From the humble pestle and mortar to multi-functional electric mixers, the display features objects that have helped revolutionize the kitchen from a hidden bunker at the back of the house to the heart of the home. The display deals with technological progress, the impacts of social shifts on home life and changes in modern design.

As part of the Surrey Museums Month 2017 ‘Surrey Super Women’ theme, Elmbridge Museum is telling the story of 8 local ladies, who have impacted on the world in which we live, in the latest museum display, ‘Everyday Heroines’.

Princesses with houses in Esher, social reformers who fought for what they believed in, and artists who documented their changing world are all represented in the exhibition. This summer, find out more about the women whose legacies continue to make Elmbridge great.
