Food – how we grow it, prepare it and eat it – is at the very heart of British culture.
Drawing from the collections at the V&A and Museums Sheffield, Food Glorious Food explores how food plays a central role in all our lives.
Foodies young and old can explore eclectic displays of labour-saving gadgets and historic culinary devices and explore a kitchen larder, packed with interesting food stories and nostalgic packaging.
Visitors can also share their food likes and dislikes using special food phones.
Star objects on display include the Nuremberg Kitchen (c.1800) and a toy milk float made by Tri-ang (1960s).
