The centre features the interests and activities of Magnus, a 10-year-old museum visitor "created" by members of the museum's junior board (none is older than 14). Sue Mitchell, the museum's education officer, says 400 teachers have attended briefings and school bookings are now being taken. Photograph by TOM FINNIE
