Hands on History

Fort Nelson & Leeds

Paragon Creative were commissioned by Furneaux Stewart to construct and install interactives and scenics for new ‘Hands on History’ experiences at The Royal Armouries Museum at Leeds and at Fort Nelson. 

The project involves the re-modelling of the sites at Leeds and Portsmouth to enable the visitors to have a greater tactile and interactive experience with the weapons and weaponry. “We’ve always had an iconoclastic approach to showing history and we believe that allowing objects to be handled is vital in bringing a modern museum collection to the public” says Armouries Director, Peter Armstrong. “It’s only by handling these objects that individuals can start to feel the sense of history that surrounds them and what it must have been like to participate in some of the most important events of the past. We want to move away from the traditional approach which shows you a glass case and a label saying ‘what, where and when’”. 

Here at Paragon we have developed and constructed a range of interactives which are now installed at Leeds, and which are proving to be highly popular with visitors of all ages and skills. The interactives are enhanced by simple but effective theming surrounds.
