UK»England»Leicestershire»National Gas Museum

The National Gas Museum in Leicester houses the largest collection of objects relating to the gas industry in the world. It was set up in 1977 by the East Midlands Region of British Gas and named after its then chairman, John Doran


The museum contains many fascinating displays which tell the story of making, distributing and using gas since the early 19th century. You can see many unusual appliances including gas heated hairdryers and even a gas radio! A re-creation of a 1920s kitchen shows what domestic life was life before electricity became common in the home.
