Our fascinating exhibition uses interactive displays to tell the story of how Marconi, Crompton and Hoffmann put Chelmsford on the world map as the birthplace of three key modern technologies:
- electrical engineering
- precision bearing manufacture
Bright Sparks lets you discover the surprising story of Chelmsford's key industries through the firms' products, employees own stories and hands-on science exhibits.
Top thing to see in this gallery:
