Come and see trucks, tractors and many other toys made from tin. See Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, perhaps the most famous toy car of all. Plastic dolls and other toys replaced tin in more recent times – but at what cost? The environmental impact of plastic is shown in an imaginative new way.  Explore the story of tin, silver and copper from the ground to your home with our amazing rocks and minerals on loan from the Camborne School of Mines. Learn about the history of trades in and around Liskeard.
