Display case on testing air before Covid

Featuring industrial tools and a creature called a ‘Dragoyle’, our new display on Measuring Air Before Covid showcases scientific instruments used to test ventilation.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, increasing ventilation has been important in reducing transmission. Measuring instruments previously used in mines and factories have found new uses in schools, shops, and offices to assess ventilation.

Come into our Main Gallery to see our display of the industrial forerunners of the tools used today.
