The Museum's new exhibition,
"Model Engineering - Micro, Macro, Meccano"
starts on 1st February and will run until the end of April.
It brings together an eclectic mix of items made by modellers from as far afield as Sheffield and includes Roman siege engines, historic aircraft, early Victorian industrial machinery, Meccano models of machinery associated with coal, and of course quite a few examples of railway engines and rolling stock which would have been seen in this area.
Some of the Meccano models will be able to be operated.
During the course of the exhibition we hope to have a number of related activities going on, mainly aimed at younger visitors.
