Things are tough right now ...

They're tough for everyone :( But when coronavirus hit here in the UK, the museum had to close its doors to the public, and we lost practically all our income overnight.

Please Donate Via Just GivingNo visitors, no workshops, no events, no school visits... no income. We know that things are tough for everyone right now, but if you can afford to help us through these tough times please donate what you can.

Stay safe, stay at home! There's over 36,000 exhibits here! That should keep you occupied for a bit - get searching!

Dark Sceptre

Known for it's huge characters and lack of colour clash, this is a tale of two civilisations clashing. One that lives on a peaceful land, and a second, the Northerners, who find themselves shipwrecked on the shore.

They are taken in, but decide not to leave, and raise arms for land, leading to the desperate king of the land to create a Dark Sceptre, calling all the people together he raises the Sceptre and turns all the northerners to fire, but their leader grabs the sceptre and casts a spell of his own, creating a shadow army of invincible warriors.

Now a hero must be found to find and destroy the Sceptre, making sure it cannot kill him in turn.
