The Civic Hall welcomes you to the Museum of Making, introducing you to the collection right from the moment you arrive. Bobbins, barometers and bricks are just some of the objects you will discover!
As you enter the Museum you can see a range of objects from our extensive making collections. This display is grouped by the materials they are made from: wood, metal, ceramic, organic, glass, stone, textile, and synthetic.
Here you can orientate yourself with the rest of the Museum, see the scale of the waterwheel that originally powered the site and see a Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engine!
Explore a selection of objects from the collections of Making and learn about the waterwheel which originally powered the site.
