Bakelite Museum

Bakelite, the invention of the Belgian Leo Baekeland, was one of the most important plastics of the first half of the twentieth century. The museum at Williton, located in a former water mill, has the largest collection of vintage plastic artefacts in Britain, including telephones, radios, cameras, typewriters and hairdryers. Visitors view the exhibits to the sound of gramophone records of the 1940s.
