Charnwood Museum

Fiery 'volcanic' structures, an underfloor 'Jurassic Sea' and replica forests provide the first level of interpretation at this popular local museum. Hidden elements requiring keen detective work and lo-tech and hi-tech interactives vary the pace further, captivating and engaging the visitor.

Visitors to the museum café were kept engaged by the insertion of a large plate glass divide that gave a view onto the display area and by an extension of the case structure of the exhibition into the seating area. The café itself was designed by others.
