View of the Inside Things Zone of the Things gallery, situated within The Basement area of the Science Museum. The photograph was taken in October 1995 - just after the gallery was opened. 'Things' forms part of an innovative suite of interactive environments for age specific groups, in this case 7-11 year olds. The Inside Things Zone lets visitors examine the make up of objects, investigate how they are made, what they are made of and why, and what makes them go. The 'Talking Head' exhibit allows children to control a variety of mechanisms, cams, levers and cogs to alter the expresion on the face.
