At the Charnwood Museum there are lots of interactive exhibits here for the kids to get stuck: you can dig through the layers of history and find out why archaeologists like old rubbish, peep under rocks, in cracks and crevices to find the hidden creatures or zoom-in on a centipede's head with the video microscope.
Permanent displays include ‘Coming to Charnwood', ‘The Natural World of Charnwood', ‘Living off the Land' and ‘Earning a Living'. Each contains exhibits from the past and present including interactive displays, computers and audio-visuals.
Visitors can handle rocks from Charnwood's volcanic past, walk beneath the giant oak tree, investigate the 4,000 year old burial of the Cossington Boy, visit the Victorian grocers shop or zoom-in on a fly's eye with the video microscope.
