A celebration of the traditional toy for little builders! With displays old and new, come and marvel at the magic of all things Meccano!

Meccano was invented by Frank Hornby in the early 20th Century and continues to be produced world wide.

The model construction kits have allowed aspiring builders to construct all kinds of mechanical creations over the years, from steam trains, to boats, to cranes and cars!

Spark your imagination with a visit to this intriguing exhibition.

There will be a hands on children's building/play area where children will be able to create models out of either metal or plastic Meccano.
