Tags Exhibitions,

From hidden hazards to perilous poisons, Danger Zone explores alarming accidents, flammable fashions and treacherous toys through Leeds museum’s collections.

The exhibition will expose the risks people took in their daily lives using the simplest of everyday objects, including some you may recognise from your own childhood.

You will be amazed at how many everyday historic items would now be considered unsafe, unhygienic or downright dangerous!

Come and discover some surprising hazards and be thankful for modern health and safety.

This exhibition is free with normal admission into Abbey House Museum.

Explore our series of talks throughout the year which have been inspired by the exhibition.
