The permanent exhibitions include architecture, engineering, design and not forgetting, transportation – including air, road, sea and rail as well as fire equipment. Mining machinery and equipment also features here, including a mock 1950s mine, and a chemistry exhibition, presenting laboratory work methods from both past and present.

Even photo-cinema artefacts are on display, presenting all the basic photochemical processes of colour photography, principles of digital photography, and the development of motion photography. The TV Studio exhibition is also a focal point for travellers – which is accessible only with a guide. Your guide will demonstrate how the studio equipment works, which is truly fascinating.
