Sadly, as our daily lives become more and more digital some things fall by the way side as they are replaced by newer, you would like to think, "better" devices.

 

The Museum of obsolete Objects makes sure we don't forget those fallen appliances, tools and gadgets and enables those of us old enough to remember, to relive those bygone times.

 

Step inside to step back in time! And you don't have to be that old!
