Magic Lantern Shows

Brecknock Museum and Art Gallery

In the 1890s and through to the early part of the 20th century, before being supplanted by film, magic lantern shows were exceptionally popular - even performing to schools. They were often accompanied by spoken narration (from a script provided by the manufacturer), and/or music. Brecknock Museum and Art Gallery has a collection of magic lantern slides and these have been used to create some slide shows. Click on an image below to view the show, which will open on a separate page. Please note that due to the size of the images, they will take a little while to load.
