About the exhibition

Summer, sun and the fun of swimming are terms hardwired into our imagination. For well over a century, people – depending on their time available and financial means – have responded to rising temperatures by heading for man-made river pools, quarry ponds and bathing lakes, for the sea and (in the city) for outdoor pools. The History Museum is devoting an exhibition to bathing culture in the 20th century. Over 130 sq. metres we show what was used to promote trips to water, and what was taken home from there: travel guides, brochures, adverts, magazines, photos, albums, postcards, slides and holiday films. They tell the story of summer fun through the decades, offering a living image of an important element of leisure culture.
