Initially conceived as an investigation into child health and development, the study has continued to monitor, record and research numerous aspects of the participants lives. The findings have appeared in more than 1,200 academic publications and are influencing the lives of many others through public policy throughout the world.
This exhibition combines technology, furniture, fashion and popular culture, including four 'rooms' recreated to transport us back through the 70s, 80s 90s and 2000s. Visitors to the exhibition can bask in the nostalgia of items such as a fondue set, arcade games, a 90s party dress and the home-computer of the 2000s.
Visitors of all ages will recognise artifacts in the exhibition, and younger visitors will witness life before the internet and see the evolution of the technology that has become commonplace in our lives, today.
Visitors can also learn about links between lifestyle choices and health through hands-on interactive exhibits.
